Our story

Here at Adzuna, we know how financially challenging it can sometimes be to be a student and how difficult it can be to gain the necessary work experience to start your career. It can be extremely daunting to start to think about life after college or university and where your career will take you. That’s why our goal is to make it an easier process for students to fall straight into an incredible job after education.

You can spend the £3,500 on paying off some of your student loans, buying a new laptop – or anything you want! The prizes we are offering will give you the knowledge, confidence and ability to dive headfirst into your dream job after you graduate!
