Placer is a unique work experience app and platform created to increase the number of students gaining work experience. It is revolutionising the way that students can access opportunities (an hour, a day, a project, a longer-term placement, and everything in between) by partnering directly with universities/colleges and a network of employers.
By partnering with Placer, you can promote the work experience opportunities you have generated, alongside those curated by Placer, through a co-branded app. This allows you to offer a greater choice of work experience opportunities to your students and makes your university/college more attractive to you next student cohort.
