Information for Employers

Offering a placement to a University of Worcester student

Work placements are a period of employment undertaken by students as part of their studies with the Worcester Business School.

Typically, students undertake either a year-long placement between their second and final years of study, or they take part in a shorter summer placement at any stage of their studies.

These are not the only types of placements that can take place however. For example, some students undertake part-time placements alongside their studies, or much shorter placement experiences at Christmas and Easter.

Worcester Business School is constantly seeking to generate new placement opportunities for its students, both in the local area and nationally. We provide support for employers at all stages of the work placement process to ensure that both the employer and the student get the most out of placement experience.

Employers pay students minimum wage plus, as the student is employed by the employer on a fixed term contract. Placements last 9-15 months FTE. Students are able to start placements from June onwards. The office will promote your placement opportunity to the students free of charge
