Host a student work placement
Whether you want to develop the future of your sector by investing in students and graduates, or have a project you need completing, we have a work placement programme to suit you.
We arrange placements for students from all disciplines and all levels, and cater for wide-ranging career aspirations. Our programmes are arranged by a dedicated team within the Swansea Employability Academy who work with employers in all industry sectors.
Our placements are:
- Flexible: Our talented students and graduates can work in your business on a full or part-time basis. Placements can be for just a few days for a specific event or project, or more long term depending on your needs.
- Funded: Funding is available to SMEs, Social Enterprises and Charities that take our students and graduates for placements. Funding can last between 10 days and 10 weeks to help cover the cost of the intern’s salary. Shorter placements are fully funded, while longer placements are matched funded with the employer.
- Fully Supported: Our team of enthusiastic Employment Coordinators can provide support, advice and guidance to both businesses and interns throughout the placement. Our students are invited to attend pre-employment coaching to make sure they are ready for the challenges and opportunities your business will provide them.
To find out more about our placement opportunities please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Employment Zone team on 01792 295500.
If you have a placement opportunity you'd like to advertise you can add it on our digital Jobs Board. However, before you can start posting on the Jobs Board you will need to become a member of Employment Zone.
