Our Work Placement Opportunities

Swansea Paid Internship Network

Through our Paid Internship Network we seek to connect employers to students from all disciplines for 4 week graduate level placements. All roles are advertised via Employment Zone, and our SEA Specialists support placements to ensure that both the business and the student get the most out of the internship. We recommend students are paid at least £300 per week, full time, and grants are available to employers to support their salary. Placements can run throughout the year, although during term time would need to be part time. 

WOW

Our WOW programme offers students a taster of a wide range of businesses and gives employers an opportunity to bring students’ dynamic talent to the business for shorter projects.   All roles are advertised via Employment Zone, and our SEA Specialists support placements to ensure that both the business and the student get the most out of the internship. WOW placements can run throughout the year, although during term time would need to be part time. 

Santander Placements

The Santander Universities Placement Programme provides students and recent graduates with paid work experience within local SMEs and third sector organisations. Santander offers flexible grants to these employers. If you're an SME, charity or social enterprise and would like to access these generous grants, email EmploymentZone@swansea.ac.uk

We're flexible!

We know your business needs employees to be flexible and dynamic. Occasionally, you may wish to extend placements or offer shorter placements than outlined above. If so please get in touch and we'll discuss the best way to meet your business needs.
