During my time working in Higher Education, students were always critical to the work that we would deliver as a careers service, recruiting hundreds of students each academic year to undertake meaningful work. I recruited my first student into the team in 2008 and I've never looked back!
As a careers team in a largely WP university, we always targeted our recruitment to students with little or no experience – helping to build confidence and aspirations. Students always added tremendous value to all initiatives the careers team developed.
In all of my work post HE, I have found ways to bring in students and graduates to help shape initiatives and contribute to client projects and briefs.
Now as Director for a small business that was set up just before the global pandemic took over the UK, we have taken on 17 students and graduates, with a further 8 student recruits in the pipeline. The value that they have added to the business is phenomenal and I could not be prouder of every single one of them - regardless of background and experience, they have come in and become part of our little TG Consulting family.
I've lost count of the number of students I have recruited to work with me and my teams over the years, but this post is to say a huge thank you to all the students and graduates that have been involved with www.tgconsultingltd.co.uk over the last 7 months - we couldn't have done it without you, and I can honestly say that I've learnt so much from each of you. Myself and the team are privileged to have been part of your career journey.
To any institution or business who would like to do more with students but isn't quite sure how - get in touch and we can have a chat! firstname.lastname@example.org
