If you didn’t believe what we had to say, check out what some of our previous students have said about their placements with us!

This year has taught me a huge range of different skills from technical analysis to presentational skills. The flexible working hours, away days and learning & development opportunities have made it a great place to work. All of my projects have directly impacted people’s lives which makes the work I have done so worthwhile.

Department for Work & Pensions placement student, 2017/18

Throughout my placement I am consistently being encouraged to take part in new learning opportunities. This ranges from training courses to develop my coding to workshops on enhancing working relationships and communication skills. A huge positive is that the department is extremely welcoming and I have been treated as a key member of the team since day one!

Throughout my placement, my work has been interesting and varied. It’s been a fantastic privilege to work on projects that affect millions of people whilst using and building on techniques and knowledge gained from my previous studies.

Home Office placement student, 2017/2018

I have found working as an OR analyst highly fulfilling. The constant development of skills is strongly encouraged here at HMRC – through workshops, seminars and technical training. I’ve also had the opportunity to lead on research and present my work for the wider team and at local seminars.
