We build lasting relationships with a huge range of employers

We work with an ever expanding portfolio of national and international organisations. Many of our partners offer opportunities to our students exclusively. Whether you represent a charity, an SME or a multinational corporation we would love to hear from you.

We have ongoing relationships with over 300 companies but work with many more as we respond to changing organisational needs and demands. We work with organisations in the south west, London, the UK and worldwide. See examples of our partner organisations.

BMW Group UK's Isabel Ashdown discusses the benefits of our Corporate Partner programme
and why she recommends our students for professional placements.

Our placement scheme started in 1974. Since then, we have built excellent relationships with organisations worldwide. Companies return to us because we connect them with the right high-calibre students for them. A large number of students take up graduate opportunities with their placement providers.
