Advertise your part time, casual or vacation vacancies to University of Exeter students for free. 

Vacancies will be visible to all current students (undergraduate and post-graduate) and to University of Exeter alumni.

To advertise, you will need to register on our systems. After registering you'll be able to upload your vacancies which will be reviewed by a member of staff before going live.

We use Handshake to promote vacancy adverts. You can connect to the University of Exeter via Handshake here.

Several Universities are now using Handshake including Cambridge, Liverpool, York, Sheffield Hallam and UWE, making it easy for employers to distribute their advert to Handshake partners with one upload.

If you have any queries about the service, you can contact us via email at or directly through the Handshake system.

Further information and guidance on using Handshake can be found here.

If you have technical queries about using Handshake you can log a ticket by visiting - and select 'Help' or 'Contact Support' where a member of the Handshake support team will be happy to assist you.
