NUE Awards 2019

NUE Awards 10th birthday

Taking place at etc.venues in Bishopsgate, London, last year’s event saw 500 people come together to celebrate the outstanding achievements of employers, universities and students in the field of undergraduate work experience.

It was a day of talks from inspiring speakers, featuring Stephen Isherwood, Chief Executive of the Institute of Student Employers (ISE) and Robyn Howard from our headline partner PwC.

The audience was also treated to an NUE Awards first; a panel discussion with four students from across the UK, who each gave us a unique insight into their personal experience with finding and applying for placements and internships.

For the jewel in our crown, guest speaker Col. Dame Kelly Holmes DBE took to the stage to deliver a motivational speech that encouraged us all to dig deep and never give up on our goals. It was clear from the hushed silence that the double Olympic gold medallist had the whole room hanging on her every word!
