Step Into Industry

Following the success of our short summer placement programme, we are now getting more and more requests from businesses for one year ‘sandwich-style’ placements.

So if you are looking for a year-long placement as part of your studies, you’ve come to the right place.

We have a growing number of opportunities offering meaningful work and experience in a range of forward thinking businesses, both small and large.

You will be supported throughout by either a member of our central team or one of our dedicated local partners, who source the opportunities, match suitable candidates and deal with all the admin.
