Careers Industrial Placement Schemes

What are Industrial Placements?

Our Industrial Placement schemes are a year-long opportunity for penultimate-year university students as part of their four or five year sandwich-degree course. The scheme offers students the chance to gain a strong start to their career by gaining valuable work experience within a thriving, fast-paced business.
