Where can you do a placement?

There are many wonderful placement opportunities available, but finding the right placement for you means thinking about some key questions:

  • Do you want to work in the UK or maybe go overseas?
  • Would you rather be in a large multinational organisation or would you prefer a small or medium-sized company?
  • What salary will you need to support yourself? This could depend on where you live.
  • What experience and skills would you like to gain? Think about gaps in your CV and your plans for the future.

There can be opportunities and disadvantages with all of these options. The Employability Team can help you find a placement that is right for you:
