Engaging student talent

We connect your business with our exceptional students from diverse backgrounds to deliver projects in your workplace.

Industry Placements (sometimes referred to as Work Based Learning) creates a mutually beneficial partnership between business and student. It connects our highly adaptive students within a professional practice to learn industry specific skills and help deliver projects within your workplace.

We have a centralised team to facilitate Industry Placements as we know businesses don’t operate like universities - you need the knowledge of higher education with the agility of a consultancy. Our approach means you can access a diversity of students across multiple knowledge areas from one place.

Whether you need five or 15, we can connect you with the right students who can immediately put their knowledge towards delivering specific projects in your workplace.

We’ll also help you navigate and manage the complexity of term-driven students in project-driven workplaces, making sure students are helping deliver core projects when you need them.

Best of all, our students are exceptional.
