Employers: Host a Nuffield Research Placement
You can place talented young people at the heart of your organisation by hosting a Nuffield Research Placement.
Placements are offered to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to increase opportunities to access university courses and STEM-related careers. You can work with top students to make significant contributions to your research and development projects.
“We are looking for employers to support students through a combination of online and on-site research activities. We work with a wide range of employers, including universities and research institutes, local government and public sector agencies, tech and pharmaceutical companies, think tanks and market research agencies. Some of these organisations employ thousands of people, and some have a single-figure headcount. What they all have in common is a clearly identifiable research and development project, and a commitment to sharing their passion for their business with young people from their local area.” STEM Learning.
The on-site element of your placement will last for a maximum of two weeks. Projects must have broadly scientific or technical content, but they don’t have to be based in a laboratory. They might be office-based, include a lot of fieldwork or they might focus on engineering, data or computer science, or social science.
There are so many benefits to hosting a Nuffield Research Placement:
- Inspire the next generation of researchers and developers, and grow future talent
- Work with top students to make significant contributions to your research and development projects
- Fulfil your public engagement, widening participation and corporate social responsibility goals
- Provide opportunities to your staff to develop coaching, mentoring and management skills
