Employer Awards

There are seven awards for employers to enter.

Headline Awards

We have two Headline Awards: Top Undergraduate Employer and Top Medium-Sized Undergraduate Scheme.

Both of these awards are based on student-written reviews submitted on RateMyPlacement. These reviews, alongside other vital statistics, are placed into an algorithm which then creates the Tables.

The five remaining awards spotlight and reward student focused initiatives, innovative developments and outstanding successes from attraction to conversion. All of these awards are nomination based so we can get a full understanding of your scheme and the opportunities you have to offer.

Check out the entry criteria below and get nominating - good luck!
