Developing a Student aims to provide information, tools and guidance to both jobseekers and businesses alike, in relation to opportunities available to current university students and graduates.

Here at Developing a Student, we are dedicated to providing you with key information, job updates and opportunities to assist you with your next step on your career path. We have compiled a guide presenting all opportunities currently accessible to students and graduates including options such as a degree apprenticeship, an internship, a graduate job, a summer job and more.

  • Why We Created Developing a Student

    After realising the potential detrimental impact of COVID-19 on the UK’s economy, with a probable sharp rise in unemployment, students and recent graduates are facing the most competitive job market in years. With the Resolution Foundation reporting that the effects of recessions have a greater impact on those who have recently left or will soon leave full time education, we believe it is vital that all opportunities available to support students and graduates are clear. This is to aid you in deciding on your next step in these extremely difficult and uncertain times, and to help you progress your future career in the best way for you.

    With the Institute for Student Employers reporting graduate recruitment is already down by 12% compared to last year, the economic fallout is already affecting those who would otherwise be entering the UK’s labour market. Many students are now deciding to stay in education and ‘ride out the storm’, which is reflected in Prospects’ report that 38% of final year students have opted to stay in further education.

    Although the graduate market has taken a big hit, there are still opportunities out there. It is reported that internship opportunities rose by 30% with many companies introducing virtual internships in place of traditional ones. Alongside this, apprenticeships also provide another opportunity to further enhance skills and experience through gaining an official qualification and a job at the same time.

    In spite of the stress and difficulties everyone is facing in this time, we want to show students, graduates and employers your combined future potential through the technical education or alternative employment available to you.

    With an overabundance of confusing information out there, we realised the benefit of providing a one-stop shop for all your employment options and opportunities. Furthermore, being a company with numerous graduates on our team, we have experienced first-hand the difficulties of finding employment in the current climate.

    That is why we are dedicated to helping you decide on your next step to make sure that you reach your future potential.
