Our story. Our mission. Our team.
In 2005, two students from Loughborough University found themselves struggling to find work placements.
Accessing early careers information wasn’t easy, so an idea was born out of their shared commitment to support fellow students following in their footsteps.
Their names are Ali Lindsay and Ollie Sidwell, and their solution was to launch RateMyPlacement.co.uk
Today, RMP has helped millions of young individuals, offering invaluable support throughout their career journeys.
RMP not only connects students with sought-after jobs but also provides some of the best student career advice available, particularly when it comes to placements and internships.
RMP was founded by students, for students. And that hasn’t changed.
Our mission is to inspire students to take the first steps in their careers - we help build brighter futures for young people.
The team brings together university, school and college students with employers. We connect talented young people with hundreds of companies offering placements, internships and apprenticeships.
It’s what we do. It’s our passion. Our purpose.
Since the company was founded, our goal has always been to support and inspire the next generation.
The Climate Crisis is integral to that goal. Their future careers depend on the future planet we create for them.
Sustainability really matters to us. That’s why we’re proudly able to call ourselves Net Zero.
RMP is also a founding partner of the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance (SRA), a partnership across our industry campaigning for sustainable recruitment processes.
