Recruit our students

Heriot-Watt University has a reputation for producing high calibre, employable students and graduates and there are many different ways they can work with your organisation.

Our Careers Advisory Service offers a full range of professional and flexible services to enable access to this quality resource.

Coronavirus information for employers 

In light of the current situation, we are providing a range of opportunities for employers to engage with students and graduates via virtual events such as live webinars or skills sessions, Q&A sessions and video case studies. For more information and to arrange a session, please email employers@hw.ac.uk   

We are keen to share with students any updates on changes to recruitment practices that employers wish to provide. Employers can help us understand the impact COVID-19 is having on their organisation by emailing employers@hw.ac.uk  

You can also support our students by providing advice, hints and tips on applying for virtual roles, participating in virtual or telephone interviews, online assessment centres or working remotely.

Please let us know if you have resources such as videos or blogs, or further information, that we can utilise. We are keeping our students up-to-date with current recruitment news via our fortnightly e-newsletter, contact us at employers@hw.ac.uk if you would like to submit an article. 

We are continuing to plan our Semester 1 events programme as usual and, should the need arise, will put in place appropriate alternative formats to ensure that employers can continue to attract and engage with our students. We will keep you up-to-date on our plans as things develop.
