Work Experience and Internships

Work experience is an extremely valuable element in a CV for any job. Whether you are a student preparing to enter the work force or looking to retrain for a different industry, a placement in a company not only gives you great experience that looks good on a CV for potential recruiters but also gives you an opportunity to really experience working in another industry.

Internships are eligible for EU funding under Erasmus +. The Language Link Internship Programme is suitable for those who are studying or working in a specific area and would like a more in-depth experience of working in a London based company. Email us at eu@languagelink.co.uk 

Language Link provides placements for those seeking to gain valuable work experience in their chosen industry in the UK. We have experience in finding and managing placements in a variety of sectors. We are used to working within the framework of Erasmus+ funding programme for work experience and can ensure that placements meet the requirements for this programme. We will take care of paperwork and liaise with the placement company to ensure monitoring and feedback is appropriately managed for participants. We can provide placements for groups and individuals coming from participating countries.

This programme has been designed for students, graduates and professionals. By managing the monitoring and feedback on each placement we can help ensure that the experience is not only a nice item on a CV but a genuinely useful and enriching one. As well as working in industry, Erasmus+ placements give participants a chance to experience working in another country. This brings challenges in linguistic and cultural differences, which we do our best to help prepare participants for and help them through during the placement.

The aim of our Work Placement Programme is twofold: the participant gains invaluable experience and practical knowledge of having worked in the UK while at the same time improving their language skills.
