About the Award

This award celebrates the tireless and invaluable contributions made by a centralised university placement service in the UK to help over 750 students apply and maximise their work experience opportunities. 

Why they won

  • At the heart of their offering, they offer an online placement module supporting job hunting, placement preparation and the development of employability skills.
  • With high engagement rates of students (73% open rates on emails), the service also adapted to support hundreds of students returning early from international placements, by offering roles at the university.
  • Through partnerships with their Alumni team and Widening Participation team, they created a £5k bursary per student, to support those from disadvantaged backgrounds undertaking a placement.
  • With 40% students supported going on to secure a placement, the university-wide commitment to employability is outstanding.
