Advertising Vacancies

UCD Career Development Centre offers a free vacancy advertising service to employers through Careers Connect. Graduate jobs, paid internships, scholarships and suitable part-time work opportunities can be advertised to UCD students and graduates through this system.

To use Careers Connect as an employer, you'll first need to register and fill in a few details about your organisation. Once your account is approved you will be sent login details and can post opportunities as and when they arise. If you forget your login details you can easily reset your password using the link provided on the login screen. Once your vacancy has been posted, you can login to edit any of the details or extend the closing date if needed.

Careers Connect is a great way to reach UCD students and graduates with your vacancies, and also to promote your organisation within the university by adding full details to your employer profile.

For further information on how to use Careers Connect as an employer, you might like to read our employer guide to advertising vacancies.

Policy on Posting Vacancies

Before posting vacancies, please take the time to read our Vacancy Handling Policy.

Recruitment Agencies should note in particular that we are happy to work with them in cases where employers engage the services of a recruitment agency to exclusively manage and screen applications on their behalf. We will publish a vacancy on behalf of a recruitment agency when the name of the client is passed to us. This does not need to be passed to students/job applicants but allows us to quality assure the opportunities we are promoting.

For more information or help with advertising your vacancies please contact a member of our team at or call +353 (0)1 716 7574.
