The Placement Factory provides incoming mobility programs tailored to the needs of each individual participant, with a view to enhancing personal intercultural awareness, acquiring new professional competencies and strengthening their knowledge of the English language while embracing the local culture and lifestyle.

Our expert knowledge of the local business markets allows us to choose the most appropriate workplace for the needs of each individual candidate. Indeed our role as a hosting intermediary organisation begins with identifying the most appropriate work place for each participant. We also liaise with the hosting companies regularly during the mobility and support both parties to resolve any problems or misunderstandings that may rise. We counsel the participants while they are here, both from a professional and a personal point of view. We also encourage them to engage in cultural, social and physical activities during their stay to help them integrate in their new environment.

Finally, we know how difficult it can be to find accommodation when you are looking from overseas. That’s why the Placement Factory can also source your accommodation and act as a link with the letting agencies. We try to place students in shared student or shared professional accommodation.
