Work Placements

SPIN

Through our Paid Internship Network we seek to connect students to employers across all sectors 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. 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.

Pregnancy and Maternity Rights

Work Placements and Protected Characteristics

Whether you're on a paid or unpaid work placement or internship, or are an employee of a company, the law protects you against discrimination because of:

  • age
  • being or becoming a transsexual person
  • being married or in a civil partnership
  • being pregnant or on maternity leave
  • disability
  • race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin
  • religion, belief or lack of religion/belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

These are called ‘protected characteristics’, and we've got a great support network in the University if you need any advice about any of the above.
