NTU Professional Placement Scheme

We are one of the biggest recruiters in the East Midlands and employ over 3,000 staff. We don't just recruit academic staff, we employ colleagues in professional services ranging from counsellors, project managers, technicians and careers consultants.

As a student with us, you may never have considered working here as an employee. However, we have an excellent track record of recruiting and developing placement students and can offer direct exposure to a number of aspects of a successful business.

This year, NTU is recruiting a number of placement students in the following departments:

  • marketing and web services
  • information systems
  • finance
  • construction management
  • conference centre and catering
  • landscape services.

The surroundings may be familiar to you but joining us on our Professional Placement scheme, will help you to experience the real business world. You will quickly develop the skills required in your sector and the transferrable qualities demanded by the workplace. As an employee you will work on live departmental projects and be given responsibility in a large business environment.

Whilst there is no guarantee of a graduate job with NTU, students who have completed a placement are more than twice as likely to secure a graduate job within six months of graduating.
