Studying but thinking ahead?

If you are a student looking for a year in business as part of your degree, ISG offers a competitive placement programme. We’ll help you stand out from the competition after graduation by providing a challenging and fulfilling year of practical work experience and some formal development.

Our industrial placement year programme

Spending a year in industry during your degree is hugely beneficial and gives you the opportunity to apply the theory you’ve learned during your degree. Our industrial placement programme will start you on the path to a successful career in the industry.

The programme

Our comprehensive development programme includes the following roles:

Other roles

We do on occasion have other roles within the placement programme, such as design managers, planners and project engineers.

Deciding the best route for you

We will work with you during the recruitment process to find the right route for you, based on your degree, experience and interests.

For each of the roles above, the placement programme comprises the following:

  • A structured development record to complement your studies and develop key skills and experience for your future career
  • A dedicated supervisor to work with you and support you in completing your development record and gaining the experience you need
  • A line manager to support you on each project
  • A buddy, from a previous graduate intake to help you settle in
  • The opportunity to secure a job for when you graduate

We’ve designed our industrial placement programme as a standalone year in industry but one that also complements our graduate programme. Candidates that have successfully completed a placement with ISG, and then go on to secure a place on our graduate programme after completing their degree will have received an excellent foundation for their continuing career at ISG.
