Placer for employers
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.
