Our story. Our mission. Our team.
Back in 2005, Ali Lindsay and Ollie Sidwell were two bright-eyed, career-hungry students at Loughborough University.
But they struggled to find placements. They realised students didn’t have access to the information or resources they needed to take the first few steps into a career.
So they launched RateMyPlacement.co.uk to support students following in their footsteps. 17 years later, RMP is a team of 50 with 4 product lines, 400+ clients and our work reaches and supports millions of young people.
RMP was founded by students, for students. And that hasn’t changed.
Our mission is to inspire young people to take the first steps in their careers - we shape careers and inspire futures.
The team brings together university, school and college students with employers. We connect talented young people with companies offering placements, internships and apprenticeships.
That’s what we do. It’s our Monday to Friday. It’s our purpose. And more importantly, our passion.
Since the company was founded, our goal has always been to support and inspire the next generation.
The Climate Crisis is tethered to that goal. Their future careers depend on the future planet we create for them.
Sustainability really matters to us. That’s why RMP has committed to going carbon net-zero by 2023.
RMP is also a founding partner of the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance (SRA), a partnership across our industry campaigning for sustainable recruitment processes.
RMP is a band of engineers and developers. A collection of copywriters, creatives and designers. Student marketing specialists and commercial wizards.
A team of passionate and collaborative individuals united by a single purpose… to inspire the next generation.
