Work experience and placements

Work placements are a very useful way of gaining relevant, professional experience and knowledge of a particular industry, as well as potential references.

Graduate recruiters often use such schemes as a means of assessing potential candidates for employment after graduation. Most large organisations and some smaller ones run placement schemes for students. These can vary in length from two-three weeks, a vacation period or up to a year.

You can find a variety of opportunities on Engage.
