An adaptable approach with a simple solution to your employment needs.

We can offer a simple solution to your short-term employment needs as we have talented and enthusiastic students with technical and employability skills that businesses require.

Placements enable you to recruit talented staff to complete specific projects and complement your existing staff.

"Placement students play a significant role... as they bring new thought processes to Cadence customer care. They bring current and new experiences with them and help us be up-to-date in our customer handling. They create a fresh buzz and excitement in an otherwise routine environment and they are a new challenge for Cadence."
Mr Pago Srai, Cadence Design Systems

Placements have taken place within large multinational companies, international companies, local companies and small start ups

Cost effective and flexible

Placements are a cost effective and flexible solution to your employment needs. The duration of contracts are between 9 to 14 months; enabling your company to avoid the expense and commitment of permanent recruitment or the uncertainty of using temporary staff.

Also, you will find that this can be a useful recruitment tool in finding suitable candidates for permanent posts at an early stage as a number of employers have recruited graduates who have been on placements with their company.

What we can offer

A Simple Process

Our full-time Placements Team is here to make the process as simple as possible for you. We are happy to discuss things at an early stage and to give you any guidance you may need. We'll advertise the placement and shortlist suitable CVs for you (or CVs can come directly to you). You decide who to interview and who to offer the placement to. The student is employed by your company via a company contract and will have support from an academic tutor throughout the year.
