Careers Stories

Michael was a Primary Process Engineer for GlaxoSmithKline

"On placement you are learning practically and learn a lot of stuff that you don't get at Uni... Being at work daily has given me a work routine and pattern."

Scott is a Procurement Manager for Unilever

"The placement experience gave me such a head start when I got into the work place. It's a year you can make mistakes, learn and develop, so when you come into a full time role, you have the experience."

International Placements

No two placements are alike, but at the very least you can expect to make strong connections in your sector, build your professional profile and develop skills that give you an advantage in the graduate job market.
