These longer placements are for students who are able to take a year out and work with an employer. They typically last 12 months and give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in life at Atkins & Faithful+Gould.

Taking you further

Each year, our top performing placement students (who’ve done at least 8 weeks on placement with us) have the opportunity to be nominated onto our Graduate Development Programme. If you’re nominated you’ll bypass the standard recruitment process and be offered a place on the programme.
