Careers & Employability want to help you develop your work force and give a boost your business. Becoming a Work Placement Provider is an exciting opportunity to give your business a unique opportunity to attract some of the North West's best students and graduates and tap into the talent and skills that they can offer. By giving a student valuable experience to develop their practical and technical knowledge and invaluable work based learning you could also be finding a future employee who you already know has the skills and abilities you are looking for but also that they can work effectively within your organisation.

The University provide a free vacancy promotion service . The service allows the user to manage their placement promotion from start to finish and have full control over the process of hiring a student or graduate. More information is available by following the link.
