  • LGBTIQA+ people
  • people of all genders

Graduate recruitment and university placements

We accept requests for student work experience placements at our office. We can only do this when we can give the appropriate level of support and guidance to students.

Requests for placements need to include a statement of support from your university.

We do not have a graduate recruitment program. We encourage university graduates to apply for current vacancies.
