12 month Sandwich Placements

A 12 month Sandwich Placement is undertaken by a student as part of their course and is an opportunity for an organisation to employ someone who is able to gain industry experience as part of their degree and who will bring fresh ideas to the business. Placement students can plug skills gaps, enable students to put theory into practice and prepare them for the workplace. Placements also have the potential to identify key staff who are taken on in a full-time role after graduation and could eventually lead the business and help it grow.
