Your organisation will benefit from a higher profile and develop a potentially valuable relationship with the University:

  • By taking part in the scheme you will make students and graduate mentees more aware of your organisation as an employer
  • If you donít currently recruit graduates, this will be a chance to find out how they could benefit your company. If your mentee has aspirations to join your sector, you will get to know a potential future employee
  • The mentees are potential customers and clients
  • Participation will demonstrate your commitment to promoting diversity and equality of opportunity.
