Work Shadowing Host

Could you offer one of our bright and talented students a work shadowing opportunity? Taking just a few days, you can really inspire a student and help them learn more about what it's like working in your profession.

As a Work Shadowing Host, a student will observe your day to day activities at work to gain a better understanding of your professional role. Usually lasting a couple of days, the purpose of shadowing is for the student to achieve an insight rather than hands on experience.

We are particularly looking for Work Shadowing opportunities in the following industries:

  • Human Resources
  • Business (alumni with an Arts degree now working in business)
  • Advertising, Marketing and PR
  • Public Sector
  • Property
  • Law
