For Applicants

Bright Green Business offers exciting opportunities for students and recent graduates to work with companies and organisations across Scotland.

Our aim is to offer meaningful project-based placements to ensure that you are not only gaining credible work experience but that you are also able to have ownership of the work you produce.

The placements are paid and run all year round. They tend to be short-term ranging from 8 to 12 weeks. We welcome applications from students and recent graduates with both a college and university background. The types of roles range from environmental management, active travel, science and engineering to marketing and communication. 

Register on our website and create an account. Once you have found a placement you would like to apply for, please upload the relevant CV. If successfully shortlisted, we will contact you to ask you some questions specific to the role. Your application will then be sent to the host organisation for review. The decision of which candidates progress to interview stage is at the employers discretion. Interviews range in length and style but you will receive all the necessary information prior to the agreed time and date.
