e-Placement celebrates most successful year
Monday 09 Jan 2017

More placements created. More students registered. More industry partnerships formed. The future is definitely bright for those who have chosen to forge a career in digital technologies.

Launched in 2010 as a project to help reduce the digital technologies skills gap in Scotland, we celebrated our most successful year in 2016. Working with a range of startups and SMEs, as well as large corporations such as Microsoft, Tesco Bank, Morgan Stanley, Leonardo and more, we:

  • Created 389 placement opportunities
  • Registered 801 students across Scotland
  • Ran 21 careers events at various universities across Scotland

In total we have helped create over 1700 opportunities to date. This shows a real demand for digital talent and is an exciting time for the industry. 

As always, our work is never done. Now is our busiest time of year with student interest in placements reaching its peak from January to April. As an employer, it's the perfect time to advertise and engage the students. To find out how we can help, contact Jamie Duncan on 01506 472 200 or email jamie.duncan@scotlandis.com. Be sure to also browse our current offers and packages, including FREE recruitment for startups.
