Employable students, impacting on your business

Through their courses of study, part-time work , extra- curricular activities and enterprising initiatives, our students have build up a wealth of higher level skills and experience: from SEO web design, to marketing strategy to written and verbal translation.

77% of our students come from the state sector, from diverse backgrounds and are academically bright. They are motivated, hard-working and possess a thirst for challenge which would be significantly advantageous to your business.  

We recognise that you have limited time, resources and budget to focus on university recruitment. Which is why we have staff on hand to assist. They are honest in their approach and will go out of their way to ensure that your vacancy is communicated to students though the most effective methods.

We want you to have a satisfying experience.
