Powerful placements for real experience
Employers seek out graduates who already have industry experience, plus this really is the best way to develop your skills to make you a sought-after candidate.
Our subject-specific employability tutors are on hand to guide you before, during and after your work experience or placement, offering advice about the types of roles available, suggesting employers to suit you and helping to prepare you for your time in industry.
We have helped students secure work placements with employers including:
- Claridge’s (Mayfair, London)
- Ritz Carlton (Naples, Florida and Colorado)
- BMW (Germany)
- Mondelēz (Birmingham)
- Scotland Rugby team
It was great to get involved and work with the players, to test my knowledge. I’ve developed my communication, leadership, adaptability and listening skills, as well as my confidence – plus I’ve made friends for life at the club.
