On starting your placement with us you will be provided with an induction to give you an overview of the company and its culture.

This will ensure that we understand your expectations of us and we meet your needs to fulfil the sandwich element of your course. We will provide you with any training you need to carry out your placement and your performance will be reviewed during the year to monitor your progress with your line manager.

We'll hand you genuine responsibility right from the start, allowing you the freedom to find solutions to real problems, secure in the knowledge there is a strong framework of support and guidance to back you up.

Future internship and placement opportunities will be advertised shortly and will be announced at the point of being open for applications. Please continue to monitor our website for further information.
