Placements and work experience

We offer student placements at SOS-UK for students who can complete research, project work and/or work placements for credit as a part of their course.

During a placement, a student is responsible for one main project. Students work alongside and liaise with other members of the team, whilst receiving regular support and supervision as you scope, research, plan and undertake a specific piece of work. 

To be eligible to take part, students must be able to receive course credit or recognition for their contributions from their place of studySOS-UK is a real Living Wage Employer and does not support unpaid internships/non-credit bearing placements or work experience.

We list opportunities available on our 'For Good' platform, designed to connect students with forward-thinking charities, public-sector organisations and businesses to work in partnership for social, environmental and economic benefit on projects, placements and research.
