We are really happy to be supporting a student through the BrightER Futures Programme which is run by ER Recruitment and De Montfort University, over the next few months. The programme helps students study a variety of courses, to help to get them ‘work-ready.
The main purpose behind it is that so many students study at our local Universities and achieve great grades, but are unaware of the opportunities and job prospects in Leicester and so move further afield – so we want to retain top talent!
Alongside their placement, they attend webinars to educate the students on things in business that aren’t necessarily covered in the typical university course.
We are hosting a student, Faaizah, who is currently studying for a Computer Science Degree. She is hoping to pursue a career in cyber security which we all know is a really important factor these days.
We look forward to being able to show her a little more in-depth of how an IT business works and will also be introducing her to the world of business networking, another area, in which students do not get much experience but is essential in the world of business.
We are always keen to help the future generation of IT with their education and future career.
