Employment support: work experience programmes

A placement year is an opportunity for your company to address a specific project or series of projects that requires a fresh insight and extra pair of hands. It's also an opportunity for your business to experience how a new graduate would work in your organisation, and evaluate a potential future employee in a cost effective way. You will be able to influence the student's workflow to suit your business needs and the student will bring a fresh perspective into your business.

Our dedicated employment team will support you through the recruitment process from start to finish.

What our students have been saying about us...

Thanks to ExpoTalent I was able to showcase my work to a number of potential employers, including my current employer. The exhibition helped me gain an interview, which further led to an exciting year-long placement at Thrive Marketing Ltd. I am in my final year and also working part-time at Thrive, with a permanent junior developer job in place when I complete my course. I would strongly advise anyone to take a placement opportunity as the knowledge and experience I gained has helped improve the quality of my work for my final year of studies.

ExpoTalent gave me the opportunity to showcase a web application to visiting businesses. I was approached by the Head of Development at VisualSoft who was very impressed by my work and the approach I had taken to solving the problem, as well as my PHP and databasing skills. I was offered a year-long placement on the spot, which was an absolute shock to me as he was the very first person I had spoken to that day! I will always be incredibly grateful to ExpoTalent for the opportunities it has provided me, as fairly early on into my placement I was offered a part-time job during my final year at Teesside, based on my skills and work attitude. This meant that I could continue working for a company I love whilst finishing my degree, and that I had also secured a job after I graduate.
