Petrus Communications is an award-winning recruitment marketing and research consultancy, working with companies and universities worldwide on graduate recruitment and employability projects.

What We Do

From Argentina to Australia, we’re working with employers, universities, student organisations and NGOs to deliver inspiring projects on campus that make a difference.

GEDC Industry Forum

In partnership with the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), we are organising the first
GEDC Industry Forum in June 2017. The Forum will focus on how universities and industry
can work together to develop the skills required among future generations of engineering
graduates and leaders.

Current Opportunities

We’re looking for talented early career and experienced candidates to join our client facing
teams in France, delivering exceptional service across a range of exciting global projects.

Airbus Fly Your Ideas

Now in its 5th edition, this biennial global student challenge in partnership with UNESCO
has seen over 15,000 students from more than 600 universities take up the challenge
to innovate with Airbus for the sustainable future of aviation.

Airbus Global University Partner Programme

Petrus has worked closely with the University Relations team to create bespoke initiatives
and events that enable Airbus to ensure the company’s long term skills needs are
shared with a targeted group of universities globally.

Total Campus

To help Total develop a long-term talent pipeline, and share their employer brand messages
on campuses worldwide, Petrus worked with the University Relations Team to create a
multi-channel platform to engage students with a range of opportunities to get to know Total.

GEDC Airbus Diversity Award

Petrus brought together the Global Engineering Deans Council and Airbus for this joint award,
as a high profile way to share both parties’ commitment to increasing the diversity amongst
the global engineering community, and inspire others to introduce or replicate initiatives in
their own institutions.

Airbus Innovation Week

A team from the University of São Paulo in Brazil took home the top prize at Airbus
Fly Your Ideas 2013. To mark their success, Petrus facilitated two Airbus expert Innovators to lead
a week of innovation activity at the university; a chance for students to apply their classroom
learning to real-world problems.

Current Opportunities

To take our Bishop Auckland Rugby Club sponsorship one step further, we are organizing an
employability event on the 28 March for the junior teams at the club. The event will offer insights
into career opportunities with local employers and other club sponsors, as well as a highly
interactive networking and skills session, in typical Petrus style! Alongside this we’re proud to
launch a ‘Communications Coordinator’ internship position at the Club which will feature a
2-week placement in Fontainebleau for the intern to work with Petrus team.
