Student & Graduate Placements

For Businesses


As an employer, how will my business or organisation benefit?

All our placements are low risk, flexible and are an excellent way to engage with prospective employees. It is an opportunity to bring in new skills, a fresh outlook and limitless enthusiasm to help your business succeed. We support you throughout the recruitment process and take care of payroll.

How much does it cost?

The costs vary depending on the programme and the size of your business. For more information about costs please email us at bright@thebusinesspartnership.org.uk 

What programmes do you have to offer?

We offer two programmes which are both aimed at helping advance any project which you may not have had the time to do, but that is important to your business. The types of projects could range from implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS) or engaging with other staff members about recycling or active travel to helping with research or administration.

How does it work?

Once you have decided on the programme, we will help you pull together a project specification and then source the students and graduates to carry it out for you. The best bit is you get to choose the person who works with you. We will send a shortlist four or five candidates who we believe fit the profile, we then hand it over to you to interview and select your candidate.
