Year in Industry Placements (Yr 13, applications open)
We help place school leavers and undergraduates with companies across the UK every year. The programme lasts for 10 -12 months (typically 12 months) and is a paid placement. The Year in Industry has vacancies with companies working in technology, computing, science, engineering, business, marketing and finance across the UK – from leading FTSE 100 companies to small innovative start-ups.
Around a quarter of all our students will secure university sponsorship each year or return to guaranteed vacation work with their host company. Many of our partner companies see The Year in Industry as an important part of their graduate recruitment programme or an introduction to a future apprentice.
Who is it for?
YINI is a resource for undergraduates and for school leavers (post A-Level/Higher/Advanced Higher or equivalents) who are looking for paid work placements within technology, computing, science, engineering and business (including finance, data analytics/science, marketing and economics). Students can apply to the programme during their university studies for their industrial year out, or in their final year of A levels/ Highers/ Advanced Highers or equivalent study, for a year’s work experience prior to going to university or as a year to help decide on the future direction of their career - be that higher apprenticeship, university or work, or during their degree course itself.
