About the award
This award celebrates the contributions made by a university faculty / department placement service in the UK who have gone above and beyond to help a small cohort of students (under 100), apply and maximise their work experience opportunities. Winners of this award win an insight day for ten of their students at Marks & Spencer’s head office.
Why they won
The University of Essex team showed so much passion and enthusiasm in what they do! Their INSPIRE, ASPIRE, BELIEVE communications strategy promoted the importance of placements and the initiatives encouraging students to engage with work experience were extremely impressive.
A word from the sponsorMarks & Spencer
Business placements are an important part of recruitment at M&S. To help us find the right students to join our scheme, we work closely with a number of universities. Sponsoring this Award is a huge thank you to all the teams we’ve worked with during the last few years. Without them, our business placement scheme wouldn’t be where it is today
