Work Experience with our Rural Team
To help us manage the demand from applicants and to ensure that you get the most out of your work experience placement it is our policy to offer work experience placements with our rural team in the summer months only.
We want to hear from enthusiastic students who would like to undertake a rural work experience placement over the summer holiday period.
The placement will typically last four weeks (extendable by agreement) during the university summer holidays and will be based in one of our fourteen offices in Scotland and Northern England. The placement will give you the opportunity for site visits, to attend client meetings, write reports and conduct research. You will be invited to attend departmental meetings and training days to meet and network with our wider team.
We asked one of work experience students to tell us a little bit more about their experience with us - you can read what they said here.
