Offer a placement and recruit a student over summer, as a year in industry as part of their degree, or tailored hours to suit your business need.

A student placement is when a student takes employment in a job role during their study time at Sheffield. This can be during the summer vacation as work experience, a year-long placement in industry in between study years, or working hours can be spread over a period of a few months, as well as other models to fit your business needs.

As well as providing students with the experience of working in your business environment, a placement can provide your business with fresh ideas and enthusiasm and access to the graduate market.

If you or your company feels that a placement is something you would like to offer to a Management Student, please get in touch with our Employability team to discuss at

Become an eMentor and share your experience with our students as well as developing your own skills throughout the programme.

Many management alumni share their expertise through the Careers' Service eMentoring Scheme. By mentoring a student, you can offer insight into your job, the skills required, the challenges you face, and your advice for students wanting to pursue a similar role to yours. Communication is by email and/or Skype and is typically one exchange per week with your mentee for 8-10 weeks.
