What is a work placement ?

A work placement is a period of supervised work, in which you will have the opportunity to experience work in a specific role within a company or at a University (Academic placement).

Why do a work placement ?


Work Placements are known as short-term employment for students or people who want to obtain opportunities, training and an insight into different business areas. They will enhance your CV and are greatly valued by employers. A work experience is an opportunity to gain real-world skills applicable to your potential career path, but also a chance for you implement skills you have developed from years of education in a working environment.


Being short-term, they give you a chance to test an industry or type of company you may see yourself working for in the future. Furthermore, many recruiters and employers agree that job candidates with a more diverse background of skill sets are certainly looked upon more favourably in the hiring process.   Also, these are once-in-a-lifetime experiences of professional development but even more of personal growth.
