Do you want to;

Great news!! Our Student Placement opportunities offer all of this in a challenging and developmental environment.

We strive to provide a great opportunity for Undergraduate students in their second year of study looking to broaden their horizons through a year in industry.

Why Us?

By investing in our Student Placements, we are growing our next generation of talent. We have supported a number of Student Placements over many years and truly see the benefit of having a fresh pair of eyes joining us. Many of our undergraduates have stayed on with us part time during their final year and have returned to build a successful career with us after graduation.

We’re proud to be a 'Real Living Wage' Employer in the heart of Newcastle, committed to paying our Student Placements a competitive salary of £16,404 per annum.

What will I gain?

It is great to see the development in Students over their time with us as part of our placements we support many final year projects and dissertations and are committed to helping your development right through your final year of study.

As part of the program you will join a project team made up of our Apprentice’s, Undergraduates and Graduates. The project will be a live business case which will provide huge benefits to the business. This will give you exposure to different elements of the business, broaden your network, form a community amongst your Early Talent peers and develop project based skills.

All of our Undergraduates have access to a Mentor within the business who will be there to support you throughout your placement and beyond! All of our mentors have been carefully selected for you and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with you.
