Recruiting Talent

main content

The University's Careers Service helps employers who are looking to recruit our graduates, but there are other options available too, including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.

The Careers Service
We tailor our approach to respond to the specific needs of SMEs, public sector, private sector, not-for-profit, national or global organisations. Our Careers Service has been rated 2nd equal with Cambridge for excellence in a national student satisfaction survey at the 30 top UK universities identified by employers (June 2009).

Recruiting MBA students 
The Strathclyde Business School has a specialist careers service for MBA students.

Student placements
Opportunities for student placements are available through:

  • Industrial CASE Studentships. Industrial CASE (co-operative awards in science and engineering) studentships are three and a half year postgraduate awards allocated to companies.
  • Marketing Works - an opportunity for companies to commission a marketing research project of high quality to be undertaken by students on the internationally renowned Masters in International Marketing or Masters in Marketing programmes.
  • Opportunities in the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management. The Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM) at the University has three main routes for establishing meaningful collaborations with industrial partners and external organisations. These are the Summer Placement Student Opportunities, the Product Development Partnership and the Individual Research Projects.

The Santander Intern Programme provides final year students and recent graduates paid-for work experience with local businesses. Santander contributes 50% of the funding for the internship with the other 50% funded by the University, the SME or both. The Programme enables participating local businesses to recruit final-year students and recent graduates. The internships last for three months and the intern receives £1,000 per month from the Programme. For further information see the internships guide or contact Hazel McAllister, Employer Engagement Adviser, on  0141 548 3683.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)
A KTP is a partnership between the university and an external organisation which allows one or more high calibre Associates (typically recently qualified graduates) to work on a project, which is core to the strategic development of the business. Find out more about KTPs and their funding opportunities.
