How do you make sure that you attract the attention of your ideal recruits?

The most successful companies don't wait until students are looking for a job to make an impression. We partner with businesses of all sizes who help our students learn vital lessons, discover unexpected opportunities, and become more work-ready.

"In my experience, students have been surprised at the number of opportunities their degree will provide, many of which may be outside their core area of study." - Richard Carter, mentor 

There are many ways that you can get involved:

  • Become a mentor, and inspire students to pursue their dream career - or discover a new one.
  • Give a guest lecture or talk, and educate students on the opportunities that await them.
  • Join expert panels, and provide experienced guidance on crucial issues.

By offering your insights, you can inspire young people to explore new paths, as well as making a connection with future employees.

Our mentors also tell us that it is personally rewarding to be able to give something back, and that the experience has helped them in turn to develop new skills.

"Mentoring is a two-way experience because every person you encounter brings knowledge and ideas and it is a great way of making you review your own business" - Elaine Reilly, mentor
