Of the sector, for the sector.

Warwick Employment Group

Launched by the University of Warwick, Warwick Employment Group (WEG) is an integrated family of specialist recruitment businesses that have been supporting the Higher Education sector for over 16 years. The group includes market-leading and well-established brands such as jobs.ac.uk and Unitemps and has recently expanded with the launch of SearchHigher, SH Professional, Piirus and TeachHigher.

Our ethos is different too. Each of our businesses has been built from the ground up through an ethical, quality and community approach, mirroring the aspirations of the Higher Education sector.

Our Brands

Each of our brands has its own heritage and personality, but they all have one thing in common – to deliver cost and efficiency savings for the Higher Education sector and beyond. Find out more about each of our brands using the links below.

Unitemps is the University of Warwick’s own temporary staffing service, providing opportunities on campus and in local commercial businesses for students, recent graduates and the wider community. Unitemps also has a successful franchise model and is currently operating in 13 locations across the UK.

jobs.ac.uk is the leading global jobs board for academic, research, science and related professions. From academic, teaching and research to managerial and support roles, we advertise job vacancies for over 7,600 organisations worldwide including universities, research institutions, colleges, charities and commercial organisations.

SearchHigher is a new executive search firm developed by University of Warwick for the Higher Education sector. SearchHigher works exclusively within HE and is therefore able to understand its nuances, current challenges and needs much more effectively to offer a dedicated service to the sector.

Following the success of SearchHigher, WEG has now launched SH Professional, a new recruitment business which will provide University of Warwick and other universities with professional staff across the administrative and academic campus functions using a contingent recruitment approach.

Developed by the Library Services at University of Warwick in 2011, Piirus is a free networking website for the global research community to connect with 1000s of potential collaborators worldwide, allowing them to build networks and explore new ideas.

Launching in 2015, TeachHigher is the University of Warwick’s new professional recruitment service designed to support academic departments to attract and engage their flexible teaching resource. Importantly it is being developed in conjunction with the University of Warwick’s academic community maintaining our ‘of the sector, for the sector’ approach to business development.
