We have two fantastic options for you:

The package

Our comprehensive package includes your work placement with a good local host company, accommodation, orientation and support throughout your placement.

Choose placements in Business administration, Business development, Events, Finance and accounting, Hospitality, IT, Marketing, Public relations and communications, and Sales. 

You’ll have a job description before starting work, a nominated work supervisor to guide and support you, and our friendly staff on hand to answer any questions you have.

Use your summer holiday to get a better understanding of what it’s really like to work and live as a local person in the UK or Australia. Travelling or studying is one thing. Really integrating into local life on a short term business placement is another.
