Work placements

Working with your IAG team we can use our extensive industry links to find workplacements for your vocational students.

In conjunction with you we will design a local campaign that places relevant employers in touch with your organisation.

With our network of over 300 + offices covering a multitude of specialist divisions (including Health Care, Social Care, Construction, Accountancy and Finance) we have established long term relationships with a huge array of clients.

The Hays appointed Project Team ensure smooth delivery of the scheme and have access to Hays infrastructure including the marketing and PR department. We review potential clients from our established database of contacts, as well as research potential new employers. As such, we are very well placed to go to the market to highlight to employers the benefit of them taking placement students from their local colleges.

We also liaise with the College and Employer to ensure all necessary Health & Safety checks have been complied with prior to any student attending a placement..

The students are given interview and career advice (individually or in groups) to help ready them for the challenges of the “real world”. We look to ensure students are placed with the most appropriate employer taking into account location and logistics (does student require a lift to work? is organisation close to public transport?). The students performance is then monitored and reviewed throughout the placement and both theirs and the employers feedback is collated and presented to the College

Our aim is to ensure students are prepared as much as possible to ensure they get the most out of their placement whilst making sure there is a constant stream of employers willing to provide quality opportunities.
