Placementmaker Limited is a Vocational Education & Training (VET) organisation, based in Cambridgeshire (UK). We manage internship programmes across the UK and Europe, under the ''World of Skills'' brand.
The company was formed in 2006 to deliver an international student placement programme for the University of Nottingham. We have been running European Commission Lifelong Learning Programmes (Erasmus & Leonardo) since 2007 and from 2008 we have managed a Leonardo da Vinci programme for graduates from the UK. We collaborate with companies in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy as well as other European countries.
The placement service we offer is completely free for good students and graduates, on longer 4-6 month placements, as we take a contribution to our costs from the Host. We may also request the Host pay a small top-up to the graduate, however this is dependent on a number of factors.
Our placements are mainly in medium and smaller companies, where the experience gained can be greater, but we have also found and supported placements in larger organisations such as KPMG, Ford Motor Company and Experian. All of our placements are high quality and focused on graduate level tasks, aligned to the candidate's studies. We also arrange language and pre-placement training, if required.
Thank you for your time in looking at our website. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully being able to help you meet your international placement needs.
