Placer – a network of universities, colleges and employers overcoming the shortfall in work experience opportunities for higher education students

What is Placer?

In a competitive job market, employers are looking for job candidates who have experience of work, so students need to develop job-specific skills whilst they are studying. Placer is an innovative platform and app that is revolutionising the way that students access work experience and get the experience they need before they complete their studies.

Placer is the first work experience app and platform to partner with universities and colleges through a co-branded app. Students can access work experience opportunities offered by their university or college, as well as Placer’s network of employers.
