Student and alumni vacancy board

Our free online vacancy board is the most effective way to advertise your opportunities to LSE students and recent alumni.  On average over 1,500 students visit the vacancy board each day to view details of opportunities including:

  • Graduate/entry level positions
  • Internships
  • Part-time and casual roles
  • Experienced hire roles
  • Volunteering roles
  • Spring insight weeks

Please read our recruitment guidelines and terms and conditions for more details.

Unpaid positions

We will only advertise opportunities which comply with local minimum wage legislation ie the National Minimum Wage in the UK.  Unpaid positions will only be considered if they are with a registered charity, voluntary organisation, associated fundraising body or statutory body; or voluntary roles which pass the 'worker test' as described in advice from NUS and UCU.

Sandwich and placement years

LSE's degree programmes do not include any placement years/year in industry and we would therefore advise against advertising these opportunities.

Competitions, awards and scholarships

LSE Careers will advertise these on our social media channels in accordance with our terms and conditions. We require a summary of the opportunity including the application method in less than 200 words and in blog post form in an email to careers.employers@lse.ac.uk.

Advertising on behalf of a third party

If you will be advertising vacancies for your clients, there is a fee of £100 + VAT per vacancy advertised. The vacancy board is only free to use if a company itself directly posts their adverts.

Recruiting international students

Please read the LSE International Student Immigration Service guide about international students working in the UK [pdf].

Targeting and promoting your opportunity

Our targeted email service can be combined with posting an opportunity on our vacancy board to ensure the right students view your vacancy and help increase the number of relevant applications you receive.

Further promote your opportunity to our students and graduates. Online advertisements on our vacancy board website, CareerHub, are now available to purchase.

LSE staff

If you are a LSE staff member looking to hire LSE students/alumni we strongly encourage you to advertise through the vacancy board. More information on hiring students can be found on CareerHub

Parliamentary internships

LSE Careers manages a Parliamentary internship programme, connecting LSE postgraduate students who want to volunteer with members of the House of Commons, House of Lords and the House Administration.  For further information on the programme see Parliamentary Internships.
