Swansea University offers its students a wide range of paid placement and work experience opportunities.
The SPIN (Swansea Paid Internship Network), WOW (Week of Work) and Santander paid placement schemes give Swansea students the opportunity to boost their CV by providing them with the practical skills to secure their future graduate job.
The placement opportunities offered by Swansea University are a great way for students to gain these skills, providing them with work experience that they can add to their CV.
Hannah Dueck, 3rd year, Maths, Swansea University Student and Bevan and Buckland In-tern: “I have developed my knowledge of accountancy, confidence, communication, computer and organisational skills. During the third week, my boss, Lee Bradley, told me to get in contact with him in March to see if there is a job vacancy after I finish my degree. I have also been offered a good reference.”
Lee Bradley, Tax Consultancy Manager, Bevan and Buckland: “The placement has gone fantastically. Hannah has been excellent. She is a very intelligent young woman with an extremely good work ethic. She has worked fast and applied common sense so has not needed much help. I have asked her to get in contact with me next year and hopefully, if we have any full-time jobs available, she will be back with us then.”
