What you’ll get in return

For starters, you’ll get to work in our state of the art offices; Instagram shots are highly encouraged! You’ll also be entitled to our unique benefits such as open holiday, 7.00pm – 7.00am email curfew, jumbo social events and discounted local gym.

Places are extremely competitive so you’ll need to be smart with your application. Many of our placement students’ progress onto graduate trainee contracts so think about the long-term qualities we’ll be looking for.

TOP TIP: Don’t forget to apply to Student Finance England whilst you’re on your placement year. Students can apply for a reduced tuition loan which will be paid on top of your placement salary. Nifty!
