Graduate Talent West acts as a distributor of employer's vacancies to all five universities in the West of England LEP: UWE Bristol, Bath Spa, University of Gloucestershire, the University of Bristol and the University of Bath
Graduate Talent West is NOT a recruitment agency but instead facilitates easy communication between employers/ agencies who want to advertise vacancies and university Careers Services and students/ graduates. GTW is aimed at boosting graduate employment and local business.
Graduate Talent West provides a centralized, web-based resource to graduate recruiters. We connect employers to the 150,000+ students and graduates who have registered with their university’s CareerHub system.
CareerHub is the Careers Service application used internally by an increasing number of universities in the UK. CareerHub is a complete Careers solution with CRM and CMS functionality to manage relationships with Students and Employers and also disseminate other information such as events, appointment bookings, job details, resource sheets, FAQs, employer research materials etc.
Graduate Talent West operates as a centralized web interface and job distribution service with each university's existing CareerHub job notification system to make it easier for employers and recruiters to contact multiple universities about graduate vacancies in one quick and simple process.
Because of the proprietary nature of each university's CareerHub data, Graduate Talent West can only provide collective statistical information to employers. Please email us at email@example.com
When you distribute jobs through Graduate Talent West it mimics the process exactly as if you had logged in to each institution individually and submitted your job. The same university staff will review and approve it either way. Graduate Talent West simply acts as an easier and more efficient way to keep in contact with multiple universities at once.
No. Graduate Talent West feeds directly into the CareerHub system of each university, so sending your ad to the university as well will just result in a duplicate vacancy being created, which will then be deleted.
When a student becomes a graduate and no longer attends a university, their contact details are retained in that university's CareerHub system so you can just as easily contact students as well as graduates. As a result, graduates and alumni still receive job notifications and emails, newsletters and mailshots.
Although you are unable to edit the vacancy directly after publishing you can request for vacancy information to be changed by the institutions. Graduate Talent West sends your vacancy content directly into the universities own 'internal' CareerHub system; the university has a legal responsibility to check each vacancy before approval, therefore once checked by university staff the vacancy cannot be edited directly by you for legal reasons.
Please ensure that all details are 100 per cent correct before proceeding; if your job has already been published to the universities, then you will need to submit a change request via Graduate Talent West.
If you would like to re-send the vacancy including other institutions, please contact us on 011732 86544 and ask for Felicity Mason or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Having a perpetual job advertisement is not an effective way to obtain responses since your job would be superseded by any new jobs posted and will fall to the bottom of the listings.
It is far more effective to use opening and closing dates in line with your application dates and to keep your distributed job high up on the search results and thus more salient for potential candidates.
You can re-publish your existing job ads easily by going to your previously listed jobs then click on the 're-publish this job' link. This will create a new job ad which can be edited as required.
It is usually a good idea to change the title of the vacancy slightly to keep the job looking 'fresh'. Since it will be a recently published job again it will be flagged as 'new' for students.
Log into your Graduate Talent West employer account, view any current or expired job and click 'preview job' and 'view publish details'.
Simply ensure that you have added that person as a staff contact in your employer account. Their name will then appear in the drop-down menu during the job publishing process. Otherwise, get in touch on the details provided
The summary is the first thing that students or graduates see before deciding whether to view the full advert. As such, it is a good idea to include some information which will help potential candidates decide whether it is a suitable job for them.
Within your Graduate Talent West employer account you can go to your 'current' or 'expired' jobs and then click the 'preview' link.
This will display the listing in the same layout as students will see it; the only difference being that the student will see it in their own university colours and interface design.
Each university's careers service is unable to provide this information as they are bound by confidentiality agreements.
You will see the session timeout window. Just enter your login details again and continue editing whatever you were working on.
Log into your Graduate Talent West account then navigate to the current or expired job and click 'view publish details'.
This will then provide you a listing of where the vacancy was published as well as if and when it was approved by each institution.
Approval delay by university careers staff can occur for any reason; Graduate Talent West does not monitor or guarantee approval by each institution since this decision is made by the Careers Service staff at each institution.
To obtain the approval status for each institution log into your Graduate Talent West account, view the job and click 'view publish details'. If you want to then follow up directly with the institution then go to the Contact Us section of this website to obtain university contact details so that you can discuss the delay directly.
Graduate Talent West is a distribution site. Vacancies will be considered by each participating institution and they reserve the right not to advertise vacancies considered unsuitable for students, and to refuse to advertise further vacancies from any company, which breaches their terms and conditions.
Currently job adverts can only be entered in text, however, they will be automatically HTML formatted when presented to students. This is done for security reasons. Basic formatting such as line breaks and bullets can be added and links to external website and email addresses will automatically be created.
Feature artwork and graphics depicting your organisation's brand or logo can be added to an enhanced employer profile at institutional level. Please contact universities directly to arrange this.
Upon registration at www.graduatetalentwest.co.uk if your company name bears a similar name to another already-registered organisation, you will be alerted by the message: 'The following employers were found that have similar names to the one you entered.’ If one of these is your organisation then please DO NOT register again as this will create a duplicate and cause confusion for students when researching your organisation.
If your organisation is large enough to have separate HR departments and locations, you can create a separate registration for that Division.
The Graduate Talent West Industry listing is based on the government standard industry classifications. It is common for some occupations e.g. Engineering Consultants to have difficulty with the codes. This is because engineering is NOT an industry but an occupation within an industry such as Building and Construction.
Employers registered with Graduate Talent West can log in to edit their contact details.
When you make changes it will automatically be synchronised with your local account at participating university careers services.
Log into Graduate Talent West and update 'organisation details', 'my details', 'staff contacts' or 'add a staff contact' from your employer account as and when required.
Using your organisation's log-in email address, go to ‘Forgot your Password’ to retrieve your password.
If you do not know your organisation's log-in email address, call us on 011732 86544 and ask for Felicity Mason or email email@example.com
Graduate Talent West does not recognise institutional log-in details, you will need to use your GTW log-in. Your Graduate Talent West account will automatically update your local accounts within each institution.
It is very important NOT to create duplicate entries since this will fragment the view of your organisation when students are researching. If you do have duplicate accounts then please contact Graduate Talent West before listing any new items.
