More and more, employers are looking for graduates with
experience from work placements or sandwich years. The likelihood
is that they are more likely to settle and understand the demands
which will be put on them. It can reduce dropout rate and increase
efficiency when recruiting at this level. But how can employers
expect this without offering something back in return? Only as
employers can you make the decision to offer work experience and
placements. So that's where MMU's Agency life comes in.
Acting as a host agency, employers will host 6 students, across
the course of the week for a half day per student. So that's each
student doing between ½ a day and a whole day per week learning
real life working culture and helping in the meantime. Its real
life work placement for them, they need to abide by the same rules
as other employees and by giving them professional development they
can help you!
- Have the
whole team in at once?
you could have 1 student in per day (with 2 on one day making up
could work on some charity work you've promised
you just need an extra pair of hands?
- Or maybe
have individual tasks?
- Or have
them come in pairs?

I'll be there too as an employer in need of a set of hands or 6!
It would be great to catch up.
