Year in Industry

Offering young people the opportunity to gain professional development by working in industry

We help place students aged 17+ in Year 13 or S5/S6 (Scottish equivalent) or undergraduate students in top UK companies and organisations every year, including, Rolls-Royce, EDF, Network Rail, Scottish Power and P&G. Typically, the programme lasts between 10-12 months and is a paid placement.

The Year in Industry has vacancies with companies working in technology, science, engineering, business and finance across the UK – from leading FTSE 100 companies to small innovative start-ups. Around a quarter of all our students are sponsored through university each year and many of our 300 partner companies see The Year in Industry as an important part of their graduate recruitment programme.

YINI is accredited at Industrial Cadets Platinum level.
