Work Experience London: Unpaid work placements in London for EU students

Work Experience London is the branch of KBM Consultants that provides trainees, young graduates and students from the European Union with career paths services and placement services in companies based in London for a period of unpaid professional training.

The Work Placement Programme in London

A work placement is a period of unpaid professional work and training in a small and medium size company. The work experience programme in London is suitable for trainees, young graduates or students coming from Universities or EU funded programmes who are looking for a way to enhance their CV and gain new skills in a different social and cultural context.

All participants need to be 18+ and the programme is for EU Nationals only. Under 18 students can be accepted as a group under the umbrella of EU Funded Mobility Programmes and when arriving in London with an adult group leader.

Your level of English must be a full B1, which is an intermediate level, some sectors may require even an higher level of English. We can provide you with a written level test and we can organize a Skype interview to test your English and to make sure your level is suitable for this programme.

In case you need to improve your English before the starting of your work experience, we can give you advice for the English Classes and we can book the course for you, please visit the English Course in London section for further information.

The duration of the work placement can vary from a minimum of 2 weeks, generally this is the duration for group programmes, to a maximum of 3 months.

We suggest you to stay as long as you can, as longer work placements can provide you with a better professional training and can really help you developing new skills and knowledge, apart from helping your English and cultural awareness growth.
