  • Trying out a particular job role and exploring career options in entrepreneurship, innovation, and social enterprise.
  • Making industry contacts and building your network
  • Developing transferrable skills such as teamwork, communication, and organisation
  • Putting your theoretical knowledge into practice
  • Obtaining points for the Employability Award
  • Let you apply your knowledge and skills in a work setting
  • Increase skills and competencies highly sought after by employers
  • Give you an insight into the way organisations operate and the challenges they face
  • Provide you with networking opportunities
  • Enable you to attend training courses
  • Clarify your career goals.
You will be given some duties and responsibilities other members of the team usually do, but you’ll have a lot more support. Whether you’re on the workshop floor, behind a desk in reception or the office, you’ll be assisting the team with their day-to-day tasks. You could spend part of your workweek shadowing someone in the business, working closely with someone in a role you could see yourself in!

There are many reasons why you should do a placement, but here are just a few:

  • Clarify your career goals for the future
  • Learn what you do (and don’t) like about different jobs
  • Give you an insight into the way organisations operate and the challenges they face
  • Increase your skills and knowledge
  • Provide you with networking opportunities
  • Help you to understand a particular job or industry
When you do work placement, you ‘ll have a supervisor or manager at the employer you are working at. Some work experience programmes also give you a mentor and with other aspects, you may need help with.
Some work placements will pay you for your work, however, most often you won’t get paid. Many employers will offer you subsidised travel, travel cards or lunches.

People often confuse work placements with internships, but the two types of experience are different. While internships are usually undertaken over the summer months or after graduation to gain experience in a particular field, work placements are taken as part of a degree. Students on a placement year are completing a module and receive academic credit for the year.
