Industrial Placements

We understand that a student wants to gain experience during their placement and therefore we provide the student with immediate responsibility. A placement year can be an important first step in your career with or without 3M and we treat you as part of our team from day one. Embarking on a placement with us will enable you to unlock potential, gain an insight into the working world, and to develop fundamental business skills.

Not only do we cater for the business side of our student’s lives, but we empathise with your social needs also. We understand the need for a good work/ life balance and therefore construct numerous social events for students to enjoy themselves.

Because we plough plenty of time and resources into our placement scheme, there is every opportunity that a successful placement year with us could lead to a blossoming career at 3M.
