About the Award

This Award celebrates the tireless and invaluable contributions made by a centralised university placement service in the UK to help over 500 students apply and maximise their work experience opportunities. 

Why They Won

  • Their proactive and varied marketing across the university demonstrates their belief in employability across the university, which last year saw over a thousand students placed
  • Last year they held their first International Students Employability Week, where they championed interactive skills sessions from employers, providing over 3,000 undergraduates with face-to-face skills development
  • The judges were also extremely impressed by their engagement with current placement student students, through a peer-to-peer coaching scheme. This empowered over 100 placement students to become coaches, which then supported over 350 undergraduates looking for placements
