Graduate Recruitment

Office for students

The Office for Students (OfS) work with higher education providers to make sure that students succeed in higher education.

Their Graduate Employment and Skills Guide is for students who are about to graduate and are at the start of their career journey.

It has been produced with 2021 graduates in mind, but current students and recent graduates may also find it helpful. Use the guide to start your journey.


Students and graduates are welcome to continue using the Careers and Employability Service after they have left university.

For full details of our graduate support package, see www.beds.ac.uk/careers/graduates

Start your search early! If you are a final year student, please note that for some graduate recruitment schemes you may need to apply at the start of your final year for positions available the following summer.
