Recruit placement students

Our placements team can help you recruit students for placements of up to 12 months.

We can help you access a large pool of talented students who are actively seeking up to 12-month placements with employers.

The Business Placements Team have developed and fostered relationships with a variety of organisations to provide placement opportunities for our students, advertising over 1400 vacancies every year.

Our Business School students often play a key part in the recruitment strategy for the employers we work with, with approximately 40% of placement students receiving job offers with their placement provider annually. 

Which courses can I recruit placement students from?

We’re confident that we can match your recruitment need with a suitable student from a related course.

We offer a wide range of courses suited to most business functions, and our students would have gained two years of knowledge in that subject area before coming into your organisation.

Our academic programmes are continually developed to ensure they are in line with current industry practice and many programmes offer an opportunity for students to undertake a placement year as part of their programme.

The following degrees offer placement routes for students in their third year of study:

Accounting, Finance and Economics

Business and Management

Marketing, Advertising, PR & Digital
