Student Placement Programme – Our Commitment to You


PRGX have been hiring students on a one-year placement scheme for over 15 years. Student hires are an integral part of our continued success as one of the UK’s top Recovery Audit firm. We now take on over 40 students per year across the UK. You will sometimes hear of student placements schemes involving non-business-related tasks – at PRGX this is not the case.


Preparing you for the “Real World”

At PRGX you’ll get the exposure to both the soft skills and behavioral traits essential for progressing your career that you may not at other organisations. You’ll conduct work for clients across many industries where you will develop your skills around: communication, teamwork, client interaction including composing business emails, telephone manner, time management, organisation, work ethic and professionalism. This will be a great grounding for your career


We often look to fill roles from our former student placement hires, in fact, our current Managing Director was a student placement at PRGX 15 years ago

We’re always expanding and looking for top talent and should you enjoy working at PRGX, there will likely be an opportunity to return and build a career with us once you have completed your degree. Many of our staff are ex-student placements who have progressed into Managerial, Director and Vice President roles. Being a global organisation we sometimes even offer opportunities around the world.


Essential hard skills that you’ll gain exposure to

When applying for jobs today it is very likely you will require experience of Microsoft packages. At PRGX this is one suite of tools we offer training on while in the programme. If you wish to gain exposure to something outside of your job then we’ll try and accommodate this for you, whether it’s to improve your PowerPoint skills and deliver presentations, incorporate a more sales or data focus to your role or gain exposure to a certain technology such as SQL, we’ll try and make this happen.


Our PRGX culture

As well as working hard at PRGX we also like to have fun. Our Social Committee ensures that regular events are organised such as Summer and Christmas gatherings, bowling, golf days and Tough Mudder participation to name a few. Due to the amount of students at PRGX there is always a social buzz outside of the workplace and lifetime friendships are made.


Our student placement programme is a great grounding for your career offering endless opportunities both during your placement year and beyond.
