Placer Ltd. is a company owned jointly be Jisc, NCUB and Unite Student. Their aim is to make it easier for students from UK universities to get work experience opportunities.
Student Work Placement Solutions asked Therapy Box to help them to create an app in which students could search and apply for work experience opportunities.
Placer is available on all major platforms and is providing students at participating universities with a great platform to find and apply for work placements. Students can simply apply for a job with a single swipe.
An opportunities page allows students to quickly navigate through a series of job opportunities (tailored to their interests). They can apply to jobs with a single swipe, hide jobs, or save to review later. Users can set up a CV, including previous work and activities and accomplishments from their time at university.
A web portal can be accessed by businesses and university staff, to advertise positions or review applications. The app collects feedback from both the employer and the employee which translates into rewards and achievement badges.
