Work placements

We offer a diverse range of work placements with the aim of improving employability within our communities. Our aim is to create meaningful placements that allow you to gain useful skills and knowledge to support your career aspirations. Each placement will take into account your learning objectives and you will be supported by a mentor throughout.

Access to internal vacancies

Whilst on your placement you will have the opportunity to apply for Hafod Job vacancies, even those which are normally only available to existing Hafod employees.

“The support and help from Hafod has been extremely valuable in helping me develop as both a professional and an individual.”

Our placements

We currently don’t have any work placements available this time, please keep an eye out on our social media pages for updates.

Build your own placement

For a ‘Build Your Own’ placement it is up to you to tell us what type of work placement could support your career aspirations. We’ll take your request to the most relevant people in our organisation to see if we can accommodate it in full or in part. We can’t guarantee we’ll be able to help but if our other placements don’t suit it is definitely worth a try.
