Finding a placement

There is a huge range of companies you could work for - from multi-national corporations in public and private sectors to small businesses. We also offer opportunities to work abroad.

Examples of companies where students have done placements include:

Airbus IBM
Augusta Westland Leadbitter
Avon and Somerset Constabulary Lidl
Bank of England Intel
Borro Lloyds TSB
Ernst & Young Marks & Spencer
Finsbury Food Group Microsoft
Grant Thornton Rolls Royce
GKN Aerospace Sainsburys
Glamorgan Cricket Club Snap Surveys
Glaxo Smithkline Unilever
Hargreaves Lansdown Welsh Assembly
Hewlett Packard Xerox

Ultimately, it's your responsibility to find a placement - which of course leaves you in charge of where you work (providing it is relevant to your degree).

Supporting you

The Business School's placements team will support you in finding a placement and, whilst working, your progress is monitored by both your employer and the Business School.

Our office works closely with the business community, advertises hundreds of opportunities every year, and will give you every assistance in finding the ideal opening for you. You'll also receive advice on preparing your CV, writing letters to employers and interview techniques. The experience of finding a placement will be invaluable preparation for when you graduate and start applying for your first job.
