Welcome to the Work Placement Website.

What is Placement? It's a three-way partnership between the employer, the University and the student. It gives you the chance to recruit a valuable source of skilled labour for your business and provides a flexible solution to your recruitment needs.

Work Placement Managers, based at the Careers Service, are responsible for the management and development of programmes within the College of Business and Law and the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science. A number of other Placement programmes, including Business Information Systems, are managed directly by our academic departments and information on these can be obtained from the relevant academic staff.

For the most part, recruitment of work placement students begins in September each year. Students must accept their first offer of placement, so we encourage employers to inform us of any placement requirements as early as you can, so as to access the largest available candidate pool. Interviews with students are organised by the Placement office on your behalf. When you have selected your preferred candidate, please inform the relevant Placement Manager and your chosen student is then allocated to you for placement.

If you would like to take a student on work placement, or would like more information on our Placement Programmes, the Placement Managers are your first point of contact.
