Offer work experience placements, apprenticeships and job opportunities for students and tap into a diverse pool of talent from partnered universities and colleges – meet your recruits of the future now.

Placer for employers

The success of your business is determined by your ability to find the best recruits. Many employers are looking for people who have experience of the workplace. That’s why it’s vital that we increase the number of work experience opportunities available to students so that they can develop the job-specific skills they need before they finish their studies.

Increasingly, you will be embracing work experience as an opportunity to tap into a pool of student talent when you need extra manpower (anything from hour or day-long tasters, week-long placements, discrete projects to long-term placements). And it’s the perfect way to introduce new ideas and ways of thinking into your workplace.

Placer is a new, innovative platform and app that is revolutionising work experience. Its premise is unique – it brings together a network of employers and universities/colleges and promotes their work experience opportunities to students. Placer helps you to build lasting relationships with universities and colleges, and their students, tap into a pool of high calibre people, and meet job candidates of the future - saving you time and money on recruitment further down the line.

In addition to promoting any work experience opportunities of up to (and including) six months free of charge via the app, employers can also advertise jobs, apprenticeships and longer internships direct to students in our network. To find out details of our pricing structure please get in touch.

Why work experience is the most important thing you will do

At school I was taught to do well so that I could go to university, that was the end goal. But, I wasn’t taught how to prepare for what came after university or what job roles were available to me, I was just told to choose a subject to pursue.
