/ BMC Student Work Placement Opportunity
This will be an unpaid position (with basic expenses) focusing on marketing and fundraising for the British Climbing Team and the promotion of the BMC climbing competitions. This subject matter could make for excellent dissertation projects and would be a useful addition to the candidate’s CV. The student would work closely with the BMC Climbing Walls and Competitions Officer and other BMC staff.
The student would not need to be in the office full time, as the majority of this work could be undertaken via the internet connection. An interest in climbing and a knowledge of the climbing industry is preferable but not essential. There will be an allowance of £50.00 per week to cover basic expenses.
For more information on the role and application please contact email@example.com or call 0161 438 3318.
I'm also looking for a student of architecture, although i'll consider other degrees, to build my house extension and ensuite toilet. You will of course do it for free, but it will be a good opportunity to build your CV.
Also offering positions for Gastronomy students to be my personal cook, landscaping students to do my garden, and physiotherapy students to give me massages.
I'll pay your travelcard and offer you free tea, though you'll have to bring the sugar yourself.
This is an unmissable opportunity. Please contact me in my Nigerian address enclosing your bank account details and PIN number.
This what similar to my reaction on reading this post. When i went on work placement for my degree I was paid around £14k a year. I thought that was rediculous, but £50 a week!!
person required to be taken advantage of in every possible way........
The way I read it is that this would be good beer money and dissertation material for a student. That's assuming that this isn't a full time job, and it doesn't sound like it is.
you get more on the dole!
The thing that really gets me though is the duration! A 'work placement' should not be 6 MONTHS LONG - that is work, not a placement and should be remunerated as such.
I'd been meaning to renew my membership but I'd rather not condone such blatant exploitation. I very much hope you do not find anyone to take up this role.
This placement is a flexible opportunity for a marketing student to get some work experience and would be a good source of research/information for a dissertation project.
At the end of the day the main aim is to try to help the British Climbing Team's as much as we can by raising their profile and hopefully sourcing sponsorship for them.
This is not meant to be a job of any sort, just work experience, the finance is purely to cover the students travel expenses to and from the BMC offices when they have to come into to the office to meet with myself.
The last person we had doing unpaid work experience here at the BMC, got a job in his chosen field very soon after as a direct result of the experiences he had gained at the BMC.
We have already had several promising applications, but there is still time to apply, so if you are interested in this opportunity please feel free to contact me directly.

Nothing to do with his/her degree, natural talent, obvious ability at the job or interview technique then?
The BMC - helping climbers (and marketing execs) all over Britain
I ahve to also ask why isn't the BMC doing this already? How much do you earn and why couldn't you do this?
