To post opportunities on our vacancy portal we require you to set up your organisation profile.
For Guidance on how to set up your profile and advertise vacancies please request our guide from email@example.com
To advertise a vacancy please read these terms and conditions before creating your employer profile through JobTeaser.
The placement of an advert on JobTeaser shall be regarded as acceptance of this vacancy policy.
Terms and conditions
It is the responsibility of the organisation submitting the vacancy to ensure that each advertisement placed is fully compliant with current employment and equal opportunities legislation.
All vacancies posted to our Vacancy Portal JobTeaser and are subject to screening by a member of the Careers Team. We reserve the right to refuse to advertise a vacancy, or to withdraw or cancel an advert entirely at our discretion. We will remove any advert that we consider contravenes our terms and conditions.
We will try to establish that organisations registering with us are legitimate organisations offering genuine work opportunities for our students and graduates; if we are unable to gather sufficient evidence for this purpose the organisation and its vacancies will not be processed.
Oxford Brookes University does not accept any liability for any advert placed with us.
We ask all organisations are aware of their obligations as a recruiter, please refer to the Government guidance on Employing People.
To ensure your company profile is approved, as a minimum please ensure the following is included: company name, administrator contact details, company website, recruiter contact details. Please do not include your job advertisement within your company profile.

We appreciate that a number of organisations are keen to offer our students “work experience” and short term projects, however it is essential that these opportunities are fair and a valuable source of experience and not just “unpaid work.” Oxford Brookes Careers reserve the right to refuse unpaid opportunities which are:
Organisations which are not a registered charity, voluntary group or not for profit organisation.
Ongoing opportunities that are longer than 12 weeks.
Job vacancies that would normally be filled by a permanent or temporary member of staff.
There is a clear commitment in advance from the employer of what the candidate can expect to learn from
Oxford Brookes Careers will advertise recruitment agency vacancies as long as they meet our policy requirements. We will only approve specific vacancies that exist and will not run generic adverts. We will require the name of the employer the agency is representing before a vacancy can be approved. This information will not be disclosed to students.
We will not advertise for private individuals/households or vacancies which are based in private homes (roles such as Personal Assistant may be considered if appropriate the processes are completed).
