Benefits of offering a placement

Placements can be hugely beneficial to both employers and students

As an employer, recruiting one of our students enables you to tap into a new pool of talent that can make a real impact on your business and improve performance.

Students bring enthusiasm, fresh ideas, up-to-date knowledge and research capabilities to your organisation.

Students can also provide a cost-effective solution to short-term recruitment needs, or take on one-off projects that other staff may not have the time to do.

Students gain both academically and personally from working in business during their time at University. Putting theories into practice in a real-life setting improves the studentís academic performance as well as enhancing their employability. Providing a student with this opportunity will enable you to contribute to the future development of a skilled workforce in the local area.
