As an employer you can make a real difference to Royal Holloway undergraduates and start them off on their career journey by offering a micro-placement at no cost to you.

Micro-placements are 2-4 weeks long and take place over the summer - they provide the perfect opportunity for students to gain an insight into a business environment and help them become more employable.

To be successful on our increasingly popular micro-placements scheme, students from 14 departments across the university undergo a competitive selection process cleverly designed to improve their skills and employability.

Offering a micro-placement gives you access to this pool of motivated, pre-selected students and therefore takes the hassle out of recruitment – it’s flexible, time- and cost-efficient.

If you are interested in finding out more about the scheme and how you can offer a micro-placement, please contact the placements team at
