Sorcha McWilliams – Current Marketing Professional Placement Student
Since beginning my placement at Nitec in June 2021, I have been presented with a number of opportunities to excel my employability and gained invaluable professional experience, from PR, to social media management, to events management, and the list goes on. Despite not having finished my placement yet, I am confident that I will be ready to enter into a graduate job when the time comes and I know that Nitec have provided me with the tools to tackle whatever the future may throw at me.

The placement year Nitec offered me, and the experience I gained from this really helped me. It was an excellent placement and prepared me well for my fourth and final year.
Craig Neeson – Former Software Development Placement Student
As I reflect on my time here, I arrive at the conclusion that Nitec offered a rare opportunity to get a very real experience of the industry in Northern Ireland, and those who are passionate and willing to learn will flourish. I am very grateful for the chance to have spent a year here and look forward to keeping ties with the company in the coming years.
