I work as an Adviser within the USW Work Placements team, supporting students and academics in the Faculty of Creative Industries (ATRiuM) in Cardiff, and the employers who wish to engage with them.
My remit includes promotion of work experience opportunities (including sandwich placements, shorter/summer placements and live projects) to students, and provision of logistical and pastoral support pre- and post placement. I work in partnership with a wide variety of local, national and occasionally international organisations within the creative industries, and others outside the sector which are looking to employ a creative student, in order to support their talent attraction strategies. In addition, I offer placement management advice and guidance to staff within the faculty.
If you are a student interested in placements or an employer interested in offering a work experience opportunity to a student, please contact me.
