Placement Partnerships with The University of Nottingham

Partnership Placements

The University of Nottingham’s Faculty of Social Sciences are keen to develop more ”Placement Partnerships” with local businesses for both term-time and Summer work experience and placements.

The only cost for your organisation will be the time you put into supervision, and you will benefit from the opportunity to utilise a varied student skill-set within your organisation and students will gain invaluable practical work experience. Recent placements have included research, helping with funding bids, marketing and PR, social media and web content and events planning.

“Our partnership with the University of Nottingham gives us the opportunity to support students to learn new skills whilst contributing to our business objectives, deadlines and projects. Our student placements also bring fresh ideas, energy and impart new ideas into their tasks. Our interns have developed skills around team working, workload management, processes and procedures as well as developing a whole range of transferable competencies to benefit their future careers. Interns have even been involved engaging with government departments and funding bodies.” Natasha Johnson-Richards, Director, Go Digit All – Nottingham
