The SBS Employability team

The Employability team, based in the Student Hub, manages the process of bringing together students looking for a placement and employers looking for students to undertake a specific project. We develop connections with students and relationships with employers so we can find the best internships, placements and live projects for undergraduate and postgraduate students at Salford Business School.

What our students say

The placement year is going great at IBM. I have learnt a great amount of knowledge about the IT industry and developed some great life long skills. I have had the chance to network with many professionals which has expanded my connections greatly.  I feel like I am 100% ready for the real working world once I have graduated!” Ramal Hassan, BSc Business Information Technology, worked at IBM

The business innovation project gives students the opportunity to enhance their real-life experience of businesses, with a variety of options available, including placements and live projects.” Emma Sutton, MSc Digital Marketing

“[The Business Innovation Live Project] was an opportunity to see some of the theories learnt during the programme come to life. I also developed some soft skills like communication skills, leadership skills, initiative and presentation skills during the course of the project which are also vital in life after study. They give students an edge in the competitive labour market with an opportunity to work with various organisations and gain that experience all employers seek.”  Adeyemi Adelekan, MBA
