We advertise paid work experience placements and voluntary work opportunities with registered charitable or not-for-profit organisations and community groups at home or overseas.

The value to your company 

A fresh insight into a project

By offering a period of work experience, you can benefit from our talented students bringing a fresh insight into one of your company's projects. You determine the length of the placement; during vacation time they are usually offered between two and 12 weeks.

Assessing potential

This is also an excellent way to recruit graduates to permanent roles as you will have gained an insight into how they can contribute directly to your business. For our students, placements offer the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and develop their skills.
