Recruitment agencies

This statement covers The University of Strathclyde's Careers Service policy toward recruitment agencies and other third party recruitment intermediaries.

In creating this policy, reference was made to the Best Practice in Graduate Recruitment statement agreed by the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services, the Association of Graduate Recruiters and the National Union of Students.


Strathclyde CareerHub

CareerHub is the Careers Service’s online vacancy portal. Employers and recruitment agencies must register with CareerHub in order to post vacancies via the portal.

To register your organisation with CareerHub, you will need to set-up a user account on the system and will be able to use the username and password you establish to update your own agency information as well as to submit job vacancies on behalf of your clients.

Please ensure that you select 'Agent for Recruiter' for 'Employer Type'.

Your registration must be approved by a member of staff and we reserve the right not to approve your user account.


Advertising vacancies

We will only advertise if the name of a client company is disclosed to the Careers Service and is included in the vacancy advert.

If a named client is not disclosed to the Careers Service, we reserve the right not to advertise the vacancy.

The Careers Service will not advertise vacancies that it reasonably believes to contravene equal opportunities, employment law or any other UK legislation. See our vacancy advertising policy for full details.

Vacancies will be advertised free of charge in CareerHub.  



Presentations by recruitment intermediaries promoting their services are not permitted.

An agency / intermediary may perform the administration on behalf of a client who wishes to give a presentation, but the client organisation must deliver the presentation itself.

The client's name will appear in all advertisements and publicity for the presentation.


Careers Fairs

Under normal circumstances, intermediaries may not attend Careers Fairs, but can deal with the administration of a client who wishes to attend.

The client's name will appear in all advertisements and publicity materials regarding the fair.


Other promotional activity

We will not hold, distribute or place posters or other promotional material, excepting the methods mentioned above. No other paper or leaflet-based information will be kept within the Careers Resource Centre.

The Careers Service will not facilitate the promotion of agency/intermediary services to academic schools, faculties or other parts of the University.
