Can you give me a job at TARGETjobs?

TARGETjobs’ parent company is Group GTI and we typically advertise the group’s vacancies on our Group GTI website. When we are able to offer internship and other entry-level roles, we will advertise them on our Group GTI employer hub on TARGETjobs. Please note that we recruit on an as-needed basis into individual roles rather than on to an annual graduate programme.

Your advice content is labelled as being ‘supported by’ an organisation. What does this mean?

The aim of TARGETjobs’ advice content in general is to provide objective and impartial information and guidance in order to help students and graduates make the best decisions about their future. If our content features a ‘supported by’ label, it describes editorially independent and objective content, written and edited by the TARGETjobs content team, with which the organisation would like to be associated and has provided some funding in order to be so. Any external contributors featuring in the article are independent from the supporter organisation and contributions are in line with our non-advertorial policy.

Your advice content is labelled as an ‘advertising feature’. What does this mean?

While the aim of TARGETjobs’ advice content remains in general to provide objective and impartial information and guidance, if the content is labelled as an ‘advertising feature’ it is content that has been written and edited in close collaboration with the organisation featured, who has funded the piece of content; it is advertising. The content will have been written by TARGETjobs’ content team, but the organisation will have had input into the messaging, provided knowledge and contributors, and approved the content.

Your advice content is labelled as being produced ‘in partnership’ with an organisation. What does this mean?

Occasionally TARGETjobs works in partnership with another organisation that provides impartial and objective careers content; this is to provide you with the most relevant information to make the best decisions about your future. Our only current content partnership is with AGCAS for our teaching careers advice. AGCAS has written or sourced the content and TARGETjobs has edited it.

How do I cite content from TARGETjobs?

We sometimes receive enquiries from students who wish to cite content from the TARGETjobs website in their academic work.

We’re delighted to provide authoritative and useful information. If you would like to cite content from TARGETjobs, please check your university or academic institution’s citation guidelines carefully.

Where no date is displayed on the webpage you wish to cite, it is standard to include the phrase [no date] or [nd] in the reference. You may also be expected to include the date that you accessed the material.

Where content is produced by an organisation such as Group GTI, the publisher of TARGETjobs, it is usual to treat the organisation as a corporate author and include the name of the organisation rather than an individual author.

Our teaching advice section includes some content that is provided through a content partnership with AGCAS, the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services, and you will see this clearly stated on the relevant articles.

You can find out more about the copyright of content on TARGETjobs and other Group GTI websites from our terms and conditions of use for students.
