Fill skills gaps and get short-term support with work placements

Work placements provide your business with cost-effective, highly-skilled temporary staff for periods of work experience. You can hire placement students for projects of 120 hours up to a full year. They're a great way to get extra support for your organisation.

There are a number of options available:

  • Short placements team you up with a student, free of charge, for 120 hours.
  • Sandwich placements last up to 48 weeks, with students joining you between their second and third year of study.
  • Applied projects link you with a group of students who work mainly on campus, but complete a specific project for your business.

What are the benefits?

Hiring placement students is a great way to

  • strengthen your team without committing to permanent contracts
  • gain fresh perspectives for your business
  • complete projects without using your core resources
  • meet potential full-time recruits

Our dedicated support team will work with you every step of the way. They’ll ensure that you find a placement student that suits your business and gets great results.
