UMAX at Cardiff Met SU are proud to announce that since we launched the UMAX Jobshop, this month we have hit the milestone of advertising 1000 jobs for our students and graduates to apply for. UMAX opened in September 2012 and in a little over 3 years we have advertised an incredible amount of jobs.
Although 1000 jobs have been advertised a large percentage of these had multiple positions, giving far more students and graduates work opportunities. These roles include volunteering, internships, part time and full time opportunities.
UMAX thrives on networking and building relationships with employers, highlighting the quality of the talent we have here at Cardiff Met, and how our students and graduates can add real value to their organisations. We love nurturing the applications and interview preparations with students and graduates to give them to confidence to sell themselves.
We network with organisations from all sectors and industries, many of which reuse us for all of their recruitment.
Some of these roles are internal positions at the university, which are not only convenient but offer great employability experience for students. UMAX is looking forward to continuing good work with university departments and external organisation which is looking to hire student staff.
