GradMatch: for MMU Graduates

The scheme is currently closed but may be opening later on in the year for 2016 graduates. You can find 100s of graduate roles advertised online via My Career Hub throughout the year.

What is a GradMatch internship?

GradMatch places recent MMU graduates with local employers on short-term internships. GradMatch internships are a great way of gaining crucial work experience to ensure you stand out from the competition. Previous internships have been in a range of roles including marketing, PR, IT, research, science and project management.   All internships are graduate level and will be advertised via My Career Hub.
