How do I know if my organisation already has a Career Hub account or if I already have a Westminster CareerHub login?
If you are not sure if your organisation already has a CareerHub account, simply start the registration process and the CareerHub system will inform you of any organisations registered under the same or a similar name. You can then merge your account, meaning you and your colleagues can all use the same employer profile.

If you are not sure if you have already registered, select ’Forgotten your username or password?’ and enter the email you would have registered with to reset your details. If the email you enter is not already registered with CareerHub you can then register as a new user.

Please note: Unfortunately we were not able to transfer everyone who was registered on Prospects.net, our previous online vacancy system. Emails were sent to each previous user informing them of the introduction of our new system, including information on how to register with Westminster CareerHub. We realise that some of the email addresses on our old system may be out of date. If you did not receive an email, please register as a new organisation.

Can I edit my job after it has been posted?

Do I need to pay students?
As an employer, it is your duty to ensure all statutory legal requirements within the country of employment are met prior to advertising your opportunity. In particular in the UK you need to be aware of the following regulations:

  • The National Minimum Wage Act (1999)
  • The Equality Act (2010)
  • Children’s Act (2004)
  • Working Time Directive legislation (1998)
  • Payment of tax or organisation of tax exemption arrangements, National Insurance contributions, or submission of Declaration of Income forms (P38) as necessary, to HM Revenue and Customs(Inland Revenue)
  • Full occupational Health and Safety regulations
  • Provision of adequate work insurance covering students and graduates for claims relating to sustainment of any damage or personal injury.

The University of Westminster is committed to social mobility and ensuring that all our students have equal and fair access to opportunities. For this reason in particular we are not able to advertise opportunities that;

  • Do not meet the National Minimum Wage unless they are for less than 1 year and are part of a course offered by the University of Westminster or are for a UK registered charity.
  • Pay on a commission-only basis, with no guarantee that the National Minimum Wage will be met.

Can I hold interviews on campus?
As an employer, you can hold interviews and events on campus for any graduate programme, internship or part-time vacancy advertised through Westminster CareerHub and the Career Development Centre. We can provide you with all the necessary facilities free of charge as long as you are interviewing University of Westminster students only.
