Further Information on Work Experience & Vacation Placements

Finding out about work placements opportunities
As more employers recognise the value, both to themselves and to students, of providing structured work placements, the number of placement schemes open to students continues to increase.

The Work Experience Bank carries information on thousands of opportunities UK wide. A number of publications on work experience and vacation placements are also widely available to students, mainly through the university careers services.

These include:
Focus on Work Experience (part of the Prospects series, produced by CSU)
Placement and Vacation Work (a Hobsons Casebook)
The A to Z of Work Experience (published by Arberry Pink)

In addition, most university careers services produce listings of vacation placement opportunities either as a part of their regular vacancy lists, or as separate publications.
