Gain hands on experience

Here at Cranswick, we take huge pride in offering year-long industry placements to a range of our trusted educational partnering universities across the UK. Our comprehensive placement scheme allows students to become part of a forward-thinking, growing business, dedicated to developing and nurturing talent from all backgrounds during the first stages of your career.

Our cohort of placement students provide valuable support to our dedicated teams year on year, whereby they are not additional members of the team, but embedded roles within our departments which we couldn’t function without.

Why do your placement with us?

We offer a competitive starting salary, alongside a range of company benefits such as access to our company discounts portal and our Cranswick eLearning portal containing hundreds of soft skills and compliance-based learning. All our placement students are given the opportunity to network with the wider business during our quarterly placement student forum, which is hosted at a different manufacturing site each quarter and allows for collaboration and networking between students and site teams to expand their network at Cranswick.
