Employment Bureau

About Us

The Employment Bureau, part of Anglia Ruskin’s Employability Service, is our on-campus recruitment agency providing paid part time-work opportunities to our students to fit around their studies as well as helping them find work once they have graduated.

We also encourage and welcome external candidates to register as we have a variety of roles on offer.

We can help you with:

  • Getting experience which looks great on your CV
  • Finding part-time temporary work
  • Securing permanent graduate positions

A degree is no longer always enough to secure a job – employers are looking for graduates who can prove they have good communication skills, advanced digital literacy and strong team-working abilities, as well as relevant work experience.

With a huge number of applicants competing for the same role, you need to make sure you stand out through your involvements and achievements. Use your time at university to add experiences, skills and projects to your CV which will prove to an employer that you can add value to their organisation.

I'm very grateful for what the Employment Bureau has done for me. Besides having very friendly staff, the registration and further applications can be done easily. It gave me the opportunity to gain valuable work experience within the university, while taking my degree. This created a relationship of trust which facilitated to have several post-graduation job roles. It is a very positive way to make the first steps into the employment world.

I found the university’s Employment Bureau very efficient and sympathetic to our particular needs as a traditional high street legal practice in a rural part of the country. They successfully filtered out inappropriate applicants leaving us with a suitable and manageable number of candidates to interview. Many thanks for this.

The team are amazing, they inform you of the various opportunities on campus and around the neighbouring community. They make me proud to be at ARU.

We approached Anglia Ruskin University in the hope of finding a Graduate for our business as we were keen to grow our own talent. Upon speaking to Suneet within the Employment Bureau, I was immediately impressed with his professionalism, humour and understanding of what I was looking for. At every stage in the recruitment process, Suneet was the absolute professional recruiter. Within days we had received suitable CV’s for candidates and Suneet followed up with the all-important phone call to discuss each individual candidate to confirm their strengths, personality and match to our business.

The level of candidates submitted by Suneet was very high. So much so, that we found the need to run an assessment day within the business to clarify which candidate we could appoint. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anglia Ruskin’s Employment Bureau and in particular Suneet to other businesses requiring a professional recruitment service for Graduates.

Great service, very supportive in enhancing my personal attributes and offering a variety of opportunities. I have benefitted a lot from the Employment Bureau and would not have the graduate job I have now if I was not supported by them throughout my studies. Well worth engaging in the service and what Student Services has to offer.

Effective and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend the Employment Bureau.

Mafera Mwenda

ARU Graduate, Public Health (2012)

Thank you so much for the great support that I have had from the Employment Bureau. As an international postgraduate student of Anglia Ruskin University, I have gained valuable work experience both in the Academic Office and HR Services department in Ashby House and I will use the knowledge in my upcoming career prospects in Malawi.

In addition, there has been no better way for me to earn and raise finances for my upkeep while I prepared for my final home return. I am sure many past, present and future international postgraduates who use such opportunities, are able to appreciate and be grateful for how much help the Employability Service contributes not only at immediate relief on upkeep needs but also the work experience that improves CVs for potential employment.

I will remain an Anglia Ruskin Ambassador in Malawi for the great academic knowledge and student experience that I have gained.

As a finance office, we have dealings with the Employment Bureau for not only recruiting staff but also time sheets, payment queries, costings for external income generation bids, etc. In all areas I have found Employment Bureau staff to be prompt, proficient and genial. Customer Excellence Ambassadors.
