Workplace opportunities

Internships, work experience/tasters, part-time work and volunteering opportunities allow:

  • students to gain understanding of the industry, build practical experience, develop workplace skills and increase self-confidence  
  • employers to participate in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and evidence positive community impact whilst identifying potential employers with minimal risk

Internships

An internship is work experience that is normally associated with undergraduates who know what field they want to work in. They are taken on as an intern by an employer and work for them for a set period of time. An internship can be paid or unpaid.

Graduate internships are an easy and economical way to get talent into your business and offer you:

  • experience working with a graduate
  • a chance to ‘trial’ future employees
  • extra resource for a specific project

They can last for a few days through to a full year, and can be part-time or full-time (outside of their study time).  We can help you develop a clearly defined job description, schedule regular performance reviews, develop interviews, support your mentors, manage the internship process etc.

Work experience/taster days

This is a short-term experience of employment starting at half a day.  It provides an opportunity for our students to undertake unpaid work to gain understanding of the industry, build practical experience, develop workplace skills and increase self confidence.

If you would like to recruit a student on a temporary or part-time basis, you can talk to us about recruiting a student, or to advertise your vacancy. Contact the Employer Hub using the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Volunteering

Providing volunteering opportunities will help you develop a future talent pipeline whilst evidencing positive community impact.  It also can raise awareness of your brand and help address diversity.  Our students are able to develop skills, knowledge and behaviours required in your sector.
