Work Experience Placements

Work experience stands out on a CV. It shows to an employer that young people have gained some transferrable skills, balanced their time with studies and starts to demonstrate a positive work ethic. It can give young people a taste of a job they are interested in pursuing in the future.

"The student was a very polite, interested and inquisitive person who fitted into our workforce very easily. It was a pleasure to have him here for the two weeks of his placement."
