They’re all shortlisted for the first National Placement and Internship Awards, to be announced by organisers RateMyPlacement.co.uk on January 21.
According to the shortlist, if you like small firms (under 250 employees), try Ash Gaming (which develops interactive gambling and betting games) or ProspectSoft (which makes customer relationship management software).
Research in Motion is one of the best new providers of work experience and IBM gives some of the best diversity within work experience.
In the Universities, Aston Bright Futures and Leeds Bright Futures (networking organisations that bring employers and students together) and the Oxford Entrepreneurs society are up for “society with a forward-thinking attitude to work experience”.
And the best university placement or careers service (as nominated by a student or employer) includes Brunel, Huddersfield and Manchester Metropolitan University, while the award for the university with a forward-thinking attitude to work-based learning could go to Aston, the University of Leeds Careers Service, or Plymouth - Work Based and Placement Learning.
