Student Work Placement


We offer placement opportunities for Social Work students who have an interest in domestic abuse.

We provide induction training and any other necessary training during your placement. Students are expected to be female, eager to learn and able to show initiative. Our work environment can be busy, demanding and sometimes challenging so you should consider this before making an approach to us. It can also be very rewarding and provide a good contrast to statutory services.

We usually split placements between residential and outreach services, ensuring you experience all the required competencies.

Thrive is a friendly, supportive and rewarding place to work. We value our employees and offer support, training, development and progression to enable everyone to reach their full potential – our student placements are treated no differently.

Some of our student placements have gone on to become employees of Thrive.

If you would like to find out more about a placement at Thrive you should contact us through your university.
