Industrial Placement Jobs advertising for SMEs.

  • In 2018, I set up SMEplacement a jobs website for students to source industrial placement roles within small and medium sized companies.

  • The industrial placement landscape is dominated by large organisations and www.SMEplacement.co.uk is a place where smaller businesses can advertise and attract undergraduates enabling them to stand out against fierce competition from the behemoth FTSE institutions.

  • Happy to discuss for more information on this – please visit the website or email / call me.

Across all the services we offer, I apply the values derived from best-practice HR management.

About Us

After working in HR management for 9 years, gaining my MCIPD qualification along the way, I fulfilled my ambition to work for myself and in 1998 set up Pure People (HR Services) Ltd. My simple plan was to provide the quality of service that I sought (and didn’t always find) as an HR practitioner.

We have done a variety of things since, including: outsourced direct recruitment, response management, low-cost recruitment, advertising, job profiling, outplacement services, graduate campaigns and generalist HR services.

I work directly on client engagements, sometimes in partnership with similarly experienced HR/Recruitment professionals, so you will benefit from my years of experience. I am client-driven and so will adapt to your requirements as they arise.
