Are you in need of a work experience opportunity? Did you know that work experience is one of the top things that employers look for in potential candidates?

At your Students' Union, we can provide you with the opportunity to participate in up to 30 hours worth of work experience with us!

Add+vantage Module - One way that you can get involved is by signing up to our second or third year undergraduate work experience placement modules. In this module you will have the chance to work closely with one or more of our departments, to understand first hand the types of activities, events and support we provide to students on a day-to-day basis. Your assignment is all about reflecting on your experiences too!

Summer Placements - We want all our students to have the opportunity to partake in a placement with us, so we have introduced our Summer Placements initiative. If you are a student, undergraduate or postgraduate, who would like to gain some work experience and develop your employability skills, we want to hear from you!
