Talent Exchange connects with local small and medium sized businesses, including organisations in the third sector, to arrange opportunities for students to gain work experience, using the knowledge and skills acquired during their studies to help businesses grow and innovate.
These work experience opportunities are tailored to the needs of the business and include one-off challenges, short-term projects and placements of varying lengths. The benefit to you as a student are:
- Put your learning into action in a real workplace
- Expand your knowledge and awareness of business and make contacts
- Gain experience and skills to enhance your CV and improve your chances of success in the graduate employment market
- Receive support from an experienced university team who will help you find valuable work connections
Read about how some our students have already benefitted from real life work experiences on the talent exchange website.
