Employers Supporting the UEA Award

'Teach First support student development and are working with the university to provide real time feedback to students. Within a competitive environment, feedback is essential and we believe that this will help students feel more confident in any place of work.’

 

‘Being a UEA graduate myself I felt this was a great opportunity to support the students on a journey which will help set them up for a successful future. As a charity, in addition to achieving our charitable aims, we feel that it is important to forge strong links with our local community. Whether it be through involvement in the UEA Award, our volunteer programme or our other community projects, we are passionate about helping people fulfil their potential.’

 

‘I particularly wanted to get behind the UEA Award because it gives Enterprise the chance to help support students from a wide range of different backgrounds. We’ve worked with other universities on similar initiatives in the past and seen the benefits first-hand – both in terms of helping students realise their full potential and in preparing them for applications and interviews with graduate recruiters like ourselves. We’re also hoping that supporting this award will raise awareness of our fantastic internships and graduate programmes. We’re proud to be an active recruiter in the local region and hope to increase applications from talented UEA students.’

 

‘We owe a lot to UEA. The skills, mindset and tenacity of graduates we have employed is exactly what has driven our business forward. These graduates are now professionals, leading teams, driving innovations and powering international success. When we heard about the UEA Award we jumped at the opportunity to be involved. The UEA Award is an exclusive and reliable symbol of going above and beyond. A badge of honour which equips students for graduate employment and life after university. At Epos Now the attributes and essence of the UEA Award resonates with what we do.’
