Work Experience Placements including Nuffield Research Placements

Work experience stands out on a CV. It shows to an employer that young people have gained some transferrable skills, balanced their time with studies and starts to demonstrate a positive work ethic. It can give young people a taste of a job they are interested in pursuing in the future.
