About the award

This Award celebrates the amazing contribution that students make to businesses across the UK. Our finalists have made a genuine, measurable impact to their business whilst on placement. And there’s £250 up for grabs for the winning student too!

Why they won

Elizabeth showed fantastic aptitude in helping develop a new ‘insights lab’ for the business, specialising in data analytics and project management. After learning a new software, they were able to run 3D models and created new analytics dashboards which were presented to senior managers and then clients. Elizabeth has secured herself a graduate role and even won Placement Student of the Year for their University Business School.
