Find a placement or internship

Establish a relationship with a future employer, and you could launch your career even before you've finished your degree.

Why do a placement? More than a third of all entry-level vacancies in 2015 were filled by graduates who had already worked for an organisation through paid internships, industrial placements or vacation work. This means it’s more important than ever to secure a placement opportunity while you're studying. What’s more, a placement can seriously enhance your CV and improve your career prospects.

Work experience ranges from a few weeks to a few months, and comes in many shapes and forms - from placements and internships to sandwich years. Whatever your work experience goals, we can help.
