Calling social enterprise and third sector employers — could you use an extra pair of hands?

University College Birmingham business school is looking for charities, businesses and social enterprises in Birmingham that may be able to offer voluntary work experience for students in the next academic year.

UCB’s business school students study Marketing, Events, Finance, HR and Admin amongst other areas and are motivated to gain crucial employability skills, such as team work and organisation.

Last year students exceeded their own expectations in the workplace and employers were impressed with the effort the students dedicated to their placements.

There are two placement models. Students on the Business course are expected to complete 50 days or more with their employer (including day release and block weeks) and can therefore work on longer term projects and build long term relationships.

Students on the Business Enterprise course are expected to complete 10 days+ of work experience during the academic year, and this offers a shorter term option both for them and for employers.

Hosts receive support from UCB at every stage in the work experience, including selection, the aim being to match students’ skills and experience to your opportunity.

If your enterprise would like to host a UCB placement student please call Nicola Machin now on 0121 232 4157 or SEND MAIL.
