Promoting your vacancies

Whether you’re recruiting for a one-off entry level opportunity, a summer internship, or a structured graduate programme, we can help you promote it to the right students.

Student Job Board

The University of Auckland is part of a consortium of all eight New Zealand universities, known as NZUni Talent. This gives employers the opportunity to advertise job opportunities to a number of universities at once at a reasonable cost. Employers can register their vacancies on the central system and this is exported to the student job boards of their chosen universities.


Vacancy types we advertise on the job board include:

  • Full-time employment
  • Graduate programmes
  • Internships (FREE)
  • Overseas employment
  • Scholarships
  • Study-related part-time or casual employment
  • Study-related vacation employment
  • Voluntary work/work experience


For more information about the cost to list vacancies, visit the NZUni Talent website.

Creating your NZUni Talent Profile

NZUni Talent is the only job board with direct access to university students and graduates in New Zealand.

For a small fee, and in addition to your Company Overview, you can build an Employer Profile that can be accessed by 150,000+ university students and graduates across Aotearoa. With an employer profile you can also:

  • Add a video clip to feature your graduate programme;
  • Inspire prospective candidates by creating a detailed snapshot of your business and the benefits of working within your organisation;
  • Pay once to increase awareness of your business across all eight of NZUni Talent's participating universities;
  • Link to your website or other resources provided for prospective candidates;
  • Include details of your vacancies, campus events and key recruitment deadlines;
    choose from a number of layout options available;
  • Request minor edits to your Employer Profile for no additional fee.

Volunteer organisations (charities and not-for-profit) registered on the NZ Charities Register can advertise free of charge.

There are heaps of other features and benefits that can be accessed through signing up, check out the video below for a sneak preview and head over to the NZUni Talent website to find out more!

Target emails

Target emails are a great way to drive additional traffic to your job listing on our student job board. They can also be used to promote other opportunities and events, or to remind students of approaching closing dates for graduate and internship programmes.

Our target email service allows organisations to directly contact their preferred group of students. We’re able to identify those students by degree type (undergraduate, conjoint, masters, PHD, etc.) year of study, degree and major. The email subject heading, body text and banner image or logo are supplied by you, so you can ensure your messages and branding are consistent.

With more than 40,000 current students, we make targeted communications to students easy and effective.

To find out what programmes and subjects our students study, visit Study Options or email to discuss how to identify the students you wish to contact.

Target emails are charged based on the number of students contacted. To receive a quote for the cost of a target email, please enter your requirements into the CDES target email form.
