You will gain insights into how to implement and embed sustainability into a complex institution, develop contacts throughout the University and have an opportunity to influence change on many levels. You will also develop vital employability and transferrable skills, essential for your future career.

You will be a penultimate undergraduate student at the University of Leeds who wishes to take a year in industry as part of your degree. You will have a passion and enthusiasm for sustainability, experience of project delivery, an ability to work independently and as part of a team, with excellent communication skills.
