Partners & Supporters
We're incredibly proud to work with ASET, AGCAS, ISE and PlaceNet to help celebrate best practice within the undergraduate industry.
We also partner with a number of employers, agencies, universities and charities in the Higher Education sector to help showcase the diverse range of entrants in our awards. Not only do they get a mass of exposure within the industry and affiliate themselves with raising the profile of undergraduate employability but they also receive the opportunity to gain exposure to shortlisted individuals / teams in their category to develop relationships further.
At PwC, our aim is to engage with students as early as possible during their education to offer them practical and meaningful work experiences that better prepare them for the world of work. Our work experience candidates can fully immerse themselves in our work and culture by getting hands-on experience, developing skills and gaining valuable insights into business, whilst allowing us to attract the best talent who share the same goals and aspirations as we do. One of the best ways we can achieve this is to engage with students in their early university years - whether it be through a short-term shadowing placement, a longer summer internship or a one-year work placement, each offers the potential to lead to a graduate position upon completion of their studies. These programmes give students the chance to test drive the career before they fully commit, but also for us to identify, nurture and develop our future leaders.
AGCAS is the expert membership organisation for higher education student career development and graduate employment professionals. Through our members, we support the best possible career outcomes from higher education for individuals, institutions, society and the economy.
Internships can shape the aspirations of young people, and in return, the fresh perspective they bring can help shape the businesses of tomorrow. As an insight-driven recruitment marketing and technology agency, we work with employers looking for these bright sparks, and we’re proud to be supporting those that have gone the extra mile with this award.
