UCL Talent Bank is a shortlisting service which connects UCL students, researchers and graduates to a broad range of employers, including UCL Alumni. This is a joint system in collaboration with the University of London (UoL).
We will actively source opportunities for UCL students, researchers and graduates, and present applications to employers. The more you engage with the service, by signing in regularly and making applications for roles, the more we can help you to be shortlisted and selected for them. Recent graduates should sign up for UCL Careers Graduates for further support on finding work.
We also run a dedicated UCL Talent Bank service for Engineering students. To find out more please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure that you are automatically considered for UCL Talent Bank roles, please complete a candidate profile:
Step 1. Register with us by uploading your CV and giving the department you are studying or have graduated in. (Please note: If you are a UCL graduate but not a member of UCL Careers Graduates you can still use your old student UPI number here)
Step 2. The system will automatically pull information from your CV. Fill in as much of the missing fields Personal Details and History sections as you can. The more information you give us about what you are looking for the more we can help.
Step 3. You can search for 'UCL Talent Bank' vacancies in the keyword section or select vacancy type 'UCL Talent Bank' or if you'd prefer you can search through all of the UOL vacancies by industry, position, and/or vacancy type.
Step 4. Click 'Apply' to apply for a vacancy. You must provide a tailored cover letter for every application you make. Due to the high amount of interest that we receive for each of our roles, we will unfortunately be unable to respond to each application individually.
Step 5. Once you have applied we will contact you if we feel that you have the appropriate skills and qualifications for the role and will let you know if you have been shortlisted and your application is being sent to the recruiter.
Once your shortlisted application has been submitted, it is up to the recruiter to inform you whether your application was successful. Please do keep in touch to let us know if you have been invited to interview or if you have been offered the role.
Please note: If we feel that you have the appropriate skills and qualifications for a particular vacancy we may contact you inviting you to apply for the vacancy. You will still have to provide a tailored cover letter as part of your application.
Our careers consultants will be pleased to help you tailor your cover letter and CV before you apply for any positions and if you secure an interview, we would be happy to help you prepare for it by arranging a practice interview.
Contact email@example.com for further information.
All employers that promote their opportunities through UCL Talent Bank will have been required to ensure the vacancy complies with The Careers Group's standard advertising guidelines and advertising guidance on UCL Careers website. They are also reminded that it is their duty to meet all statutory legal requirements including UK Employment legislation such as Right to Work legislation and the Equality Act (2010), so that the adverts and selection criteria are not unlawfully discriminatory.
