The Year in Industry

The Year in Industry (YINI) provide work experience placements for students either in their gap year before starting university or during their degree course. YINI are able to place students in over 300 different companies from Shell to Network Rail, and AstraZeneca to Rolls Royce.

These placements not only give the students an insight into working life and provide them with the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for; they are also an excellent pathway to set them on the fast track to their future career and get ahead.

Students are not only paid for their hard work (typically earning between £9,000-£14,000), but they are also learning invaluable life skills such as learning to manage their work and make the most out of university. They also earn respect, gain confidence and can show their independence within their placement company.

YINI will match the student with the company best-placed to give them the relevant experience they are seeking, and do have placements available throughout the UK so that students can live at home or away depending on their preference.
