Love where you live and work?

All the evidence from destination data over many years points to students who have a connection with the region - they grew up and/or studied here - are the ones most likely to want to work here. They love where they live and want to work here too.

Make sure you tap into this pool of new recruits next year byadvertising your roles with us. We actively seek out students from SW Universities to register with us - as they are the most likely to want to work in the region.
