NUS Placements for Good – Take on a Student this Summer

Take on a Placement Student this Summer     

Be part of the National Union of Students’ new programme – Placements for Good.

Do you want to be part of a new and exciting pilot programme? Work with university level students and increase capacity to progress sustainability.

NUS are looking for forward thinking organisations who want to work with university level students for social, environmental and economic benefit. Join a network of organisations working to enhance partnership working with universities whilst exploring potential to make a positive impact through their work.

They will:

  • Take away the hassle of recruitment and ensure you are partnered with talented and highly motivated students
  • Support you and your placement student before (with pre-placement training), during and after the placement to make this a valuable opportunity for all
  • Work with you to design a programme of work that supports your organisation’s core business as well as increasing your capacity to progress the sustainability (environmental and ethical) impacts of your work.

Placement for Good works with local charities, public sector organisations and businesses to empower students from all backgrounds to innovate and progress sustainability through meaningful work placements. They are looking for organisations like yourselves to support this vision whilst benefiting from the fantastic contributions’ students can offer.

In 2019, they are working with Solent University Southampton, University Centre South Devon and University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s.
