Summer and graduate placement opportunities

A great range of 200-hour part-time (20 hours per week over 10 weeks) and five-month full-time, paid student summer placements are currently available exclusively to LJMU students via the LJMU Graduate Futures programme.

All of the opportunities, available to second (level 5), final year (level 6) and postgraduate (level 7) LJMU students, are based in the Liverpool City Region and cover a wide variety of roles across a range of sectors and industries. Competitive salaries offered at National Living Wage (£10.80 per hour or above).

The roles will commence in May after assessments are complete and are the ideal opportunity to get invaluable work experience under your belt and earn some handy spending cash so apply now.

Five/six-month graduate placements (for L6 final year students only)

Current final year students graduating in 2023 can also apply for a paid, five/six-month graduate placement that will begin in May 2023 after you have completed your final assessments and must be completed by the end of October. All of the graduate placements are based in the Liverpool City Region and provide the ideal springboard into the graduate labour market for graduating students. The opportunities cover a wide variety of roles across a range of sectors and industries and competitive salaries offered.
