Student placements with Hays

Hays Ratemyplacement

We open our recruitment for placement year students from October – January for a start in the summer. Our award-winning intern programme will give you a unique insight into the world of work and hands-on experience of life in business. Our 12-month internship will see you running your own desk, working alongside high performing consultants, and interacting with both candidates and clients – in fact you’re pretty much treated just like every other employee that works for us. As a result, you’ll be equipped with the skills you’ll need to succeed once you finish university, and many of our placement students return to Hays after completing their studies.

We are the most successful recruitment company in the U.K, placing more than one candidate into a job every minute of every business day. We’re global and operate across the UK&I, working with many of the biggest companies as well as a wide range of smaller businesses.

We've been voted one of the UK’s best companies to work for by Glassdoor and we're the most followed recruitment company globally on LinkedIn. Our placement year was recognised by Rate My Placement as being the best in the recruitment industry and one of the top companies in the UK. If you’re thinking about a future career in business there’s no better placement year for you than Hays.
