Thinking of hiring a business management placement student?

Posted: 10th November 2021

A Business Management placement student can provide value to any business; particularly if there’s a project you want to work on but don’t have the resource to see it through, or if you’re looking for support in specialised business areas to continue to drive growth.

Why recruit a placement student? 

Placements can be paid or unpaid and while we push for full-time hours, we can be flexible to suit the needs of any business!

No fee is payable to the university for arranging the placement, and we work with both the student and employer to ensure the placement is mutually beneficial for all involved, offering support before and during the placement, with clearly defined learning outcomes agreed at the outset.

Students subject to any interview and selection process the employer wishes to apply to ensure there is a good fit.

Start Date and Duration 

Placements start in Spring 2022 and run until Winter 2022 but we can be flexible to adapt to your timeframe.

If you think this is something you might be in interested in learning more about I’d welcome the opportunity to arrange a time for a quick call. Please get in touch using the details above, and we’ll connect!
