At Your SU, we provide micro-placements to support students to get valuable work experience. For these internal placements, you will be volunteering in a department at Your SU supporting their team whilst gaining skills you want to improve. Previous placement have included marketing and promotion, business development, research, and event planning which have improved the participating students time management, communication skills (both written and verbal), project management, collaboration, people skills, problem-solving and leadership capabilities.
