Welcome to the University of Derby Employability Portal

At the University of Derby we know how important it is to give you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd in a competitive jobs market. Undertaking work placements, internships or volunteering opportunities will allow you to gain relevant work-based experience, meet new people, build networks and to make a difference to a business or organisation.

"How do I prove to an employer that I’m their perfect graduate?”
To be employable, you need to prove to employers that you can combine the skills and knowledge that you are learning on your course with real life situations. This portal will allow you to find work placements, internships and volunteering projects that will do just that.

"What else will I find on the portal?”

We have lots of information for you about how to increase your employability, from handy tips on CV writing to a look at the transferable skills that employers look for in new graduates.

By clicking ‘Placement Opportunities’ and filling out the form you will have access to a range of current opportunities. You can use the search and filter functions to find your perfect placement and then apply for each opportunity online.

"Is there anything else I need to know?”

This portal is managed by the placements office. It is our job to work with employers to develop a range of opportunities to suit all courses, job roles and attributes. New opportunities are added all of the time and to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events be sure to add us on Facebook.
