Canterbury Christ Church University becomes our newest University to open a Unitemps Franchise. Through Unitemps students, graduates and members of the local community will be able to search for jobs across University departments and local businesses, gaining invaluable work experience, skills and knowledge that will help them progress in their career and increase their employability.

Claire Charles, Assistant Head of Career Development and Christ Church Unitemps Branch Manager, comments “Employability is one of the key strategies for our University and there is a strong commitment at Canterbury Christ Church University in supporting students to develop and experience the world of work as much as possible. This fits perfectly with the ethos of Unitemps and ensures that the opportunities available to our students are quality assured, contribute to enhancing their learning, and improve their employability."

Paul Brewster, Director of Unitemps, comments “Drawing upon the experience and expertise of recruitment consultants, HR professionals and the HE community, our franchise model has been developed to address the particular needs of Universities. It offers students and institutions all the benefits of an in-house recruitment agency, as well as addressing social responsibility concerns and enhancing the wider student experience to the advantage of all stakeholders. The network continues to grow at pace and we are extremely pleased that Canterbury Christ Church have chosen to join and take advantage of the obvious benefits for its campus and community. We look forward to working closely together to make Unitemps Canterbury Christ Church a huge success."
