Having a student through work placement strengthens the links between Ramboll and the University. It also provides potential graduates insight into who Ramboll are and what we do as an organisation.

How has the student’s role added value and benefit to your organisation?

Larissa has made a valuable contribution to the organisation by working on projects and being part of project teams. She has fulfilled the same role as a graduate environment consultant would.

Can you offer advice to other organisations considering hosting second year undergraduates on work placement?

It is worth considering taking on a student. They can assist with business activities through work placed learning, and also looking at a potential future employee.

What would you say are the most important skills and qualities you look for in a prospective employee?

Enthusiasm, attention to detail, good communication skills and willingness to learn to name but a few. Having relevant work experience often differentiates
candidates with similar qualifications.

Do you think it is important for students to undergo Work Based Learning during their studies?

Yes, it is a good for students to experience the work environment and also provide context to what they have learnt as part of their academic studies. It also gives them the opportunity to experience what different jobs have to offer and what is required. It is also good for their CVs and will be useful for when they graduate and hopefully set them apart from other job applicants.
