Lucy Picton known as Lucy Picton
BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science
I am a work placement adviser for the schools of Engineering and Applied Science within the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science. I work with employers and academics to secure placements (year out, summer or live project work) for our students. I provide students with advice on finding a placement, support them during the application process, and act as point of contact for both employers and students during the placement. I can also guide an employer through the process of recruiting students, promote their vacancies, and arrange visits to meet students on campus.
I have worked at the University since January 2012, initially working on European funded projects offering university courses to employers. I started with the Careers Service in August 2015. My work before starting at USW was mainly in recruitment.
