Getting involved

Advertising your vacancies

Every month over 500 Skills Bootcamp learners and alumni receive a newsletter. This can be used to advertise your vacancies and upcoming events to an audience of learners who are actively searching for careers in your sector.

Your business can be featured on our social media channels, reaching over 500 potential customers and employees.

Join events

Skills Bootcamp learners have said that one of the most beneficial experiences of the course was hearing first-hand about working in their chosen industry from industry professionals. Share your expertise and network with our learners by hosting a guest talk or a day of workshops.

You'll have the chance to meet our learners in person by attending one of our career days. These allow you to advertise your vacancies and interview potential candidates there and then.

Talent scouting

In the past, companies have held a series of mock interviews for our learners. These can be used as talent scouting opportunities for your company. Therefore, if a position becomes available in your company you can save money on job advertising by contacting suitable Skills Bootcamps learners.

“Working with the team at Bath Spa University has been a pleasure. To date we have run two workshops with the Skills Bootcamp in Creative Computing: UI/UX Design. The days consisted of mock interviews, design tasks and Q and As about working in the UX industry. We were able to get a fresh viewpoint on how to enhance the user experience on our App products, whilst the students had the opportunity to put into practice all the learnings from their Skills Bootcamp.”

Vicky McIntyre, Senior UX/UI Designer, Unite Students

“I took part in this Skills Bootcamp to learn how to code so that I could pursue a career in tech. I was given good support from my lecturers during and after the course, and can now code independently.”

“As a Bath Spa University graduate, working with the Skills Bootcamps has been a great opportunity to support students in the same way other professionals did for me while studying. I always enjoyed professional lectures, as the insight they gave made the transition into the workplace far less intimidating."

Georgine Tucker, Senior Graphic Designer, Transform Digital
