Sponsoring one of Kent’s students, taking a student on a placement year or getting involved in student projects – all are excellent ways to identify and recruit new talent.
Year in Industry
The Year in Industry is offered to second-year students who are achieving good results in their studies. Typical placements run from summer to summer, starting as early as June or as late as September. During the placement year, the employer pays a salary and the student becomes a member of staff, with the same responsibilities.
Sponsored student scheme
The sponsored student scheme offers additional benefits to the standard placement year. Increasingly, employers are looking at how they can work with universities to attract bright and competent graduates who already have relevant experience in their particular field. One excellent way of doing this is by offering support and work experience throughout a student’s degree.
