Bespoke Work Programmes with King’s

Provide meaningful work experiences for King's students

Our broad portfolio is focused on opening up doors and access to diverse student cohorts, and supporting research talent at King's. Select from shorter to longer term Work-related learning experiences, to suit your availability and preferences or longer credit-bearing internships and industry placements.

We seek employers that provide meaningful, high-quality opportunities that will enrich the student experience, and in return we offer advice and consultancy to help you reach the most relevant students.


Why work with us?

Our Work-based Learning Unit, held centrally in our Employer Engagement function oversees and facilitates a wealth of different work-related or work-based schemes and programmes on behalf of various faculties and student cohorts that endeavour to build confidence, open networks and equip your organisation with access to top global talent.

From light-touch interventions of just half a day, to hosting industry placement students for an entire year we endeavour to build lasting partnerships with organisations of all shapes, sizes, geographies and sectors. Explore our cycle of opportunites below which showcases just some of the structured opportunities available and the different audiences they are targeted to.

The brief of sustainable development is particularly pertinent at this moment in time as the Club furthers its transition into having a fully professional set up. We are mindful of the imperative to always be as sustainable as possible whilst we are doing this and being able to tap into the wealth of expertise and resources that the Accredited Internship Programme and its students offer will be extremely helpful to meeting that objective.

Alongside this, our Advisers can provide guidance in developing and shaping your advertisements, consultancy on inclusive recruitment and assessment processes and ideas on how to best engage and reach our students.

We work in tandem with our Employer Relations & Development team, who can help develop a broader strategy and other interventions at King's, aspiring to provide one central point of contact for your organisation so we can discuss the right interventions for you and your talent demands.

Taking part in an Insight Project provided me with a great opportunity to use the knowledge, skills and abilities learnt over the duration of my Liberal Arts BA degree so far at King's, gaining valuable insight into the real-life application of consulting and business operations.
