'I turned a 6 week placement into a full time position'

Find out more about placement opportunities at Sheffield Hallam.

Sport Business Management student Lucy completed a 6 week marketing placement with Kitlocker as part of her course which resulted in her securing a full time position with them after graduating. 

At Sheffield Hallam, you don't just learn it - you do it. This means you'll have opportunities on every course to put your learning into practice in a real job, be it a short or long term placement, working on real-world projects or volunteering.

During her placement at Kitlocker, Lucy learnt industry relevant skills such as email marketing and photography, giving her the opportunity to make an impact on a real business.

Lucy said, 'I learnt a lot that can't be taught at uni like customer service skills, how to carry yourself professionally and working with colleagues. Having real-world experience like this helps you to be something different.'

Oli, Marketing Manager at Kitlocker said, 'We give placement students the tools and responsibility they need to grow as we value their enthusiasm, fresh ideas and willingness to learn.'
