Work experience with Social Enterprise Hub

Meaningful work experience at organisations that share your values helps bridge the gap between your in-classroom learning and industry experience. The range of experiences available includes work placements, team-based challenges (both class-based and hackathons), industry events and research projects, as well as volunteering and job opportunities with social enterprises.

You’ll be matched with a relevant organisation – from corporates through to for-purpose enterprises – to help you build the skills, understanding and confidence you’ll need for your career. You'll also have a positive social impact while you study, which fits in with our commitment to Be Good.

Why social impact is important to us

We believe it’s up to all of us to make the world a better place, and our goal is to be a force for good – and to encourage our students to do the same.

We have made a commitment to Be Good, and we belong to the global B Corp movement, an international community of like-minded organisations. As a Certified B Corporation, we meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance and accountability, values we hope to share with you so you carry them into your career.

In support of our commitment to Be Good, The Social Enterprise Hub provides you with an opportunity to contribute to social enterprises and activities and develop skills for a successful career.
