Attract the best students by offering work placements for your higher education students.

Placer for universities and colleges

Competition for the best students is fierce. Students know all too well that they need to develop job-specific skills alongside their studies to improve their chances of getting the career they want. Universities and colleges that can offer the best work experience placements will find it easier to attract top students.

Placer is a unique work experience app and platform created to increase the number of students gaining work experience. It is revolutionising the way that students can access opportunities (an hour, a day, a project, a longer-term placement, and everything in between) by partnering directly with universities/colleges and a network of employers.

By partnering with Placer, you can promote the work experience opportunities you have generated, alongside those curated by Placer, through a co-branded app. This allows you to offer a greater choice of work experience opportunities to your students and makes your university/college more attractive to you next student cohort.
