BOOST your employability and leadership skills whilst gaining some well deserved recognition for your voluntary contributions by signing up to take part in the Student Leaders Programme!
You're all well aware that today's employment market is increasingly competitive and employers are looking beyond academic achievement when considering applicants for a job or internship.
Many now expect to see evidence of other skills and achievements before considering someone as an attractive potential employee (and this applies to all degree disciplines!) According to a CBI survey 82% of businesses said it is the single most important consideration when recruiting graduates.
Employability covers a broad range of non-academic or 'softer skills' which are of value in the workplace. Taking part in the Student Leaders Programme will not only enhance the leadership skills that you gain whilst volunteering but will also support you in building a tranferrable skill set and help you 'sell yourself' to future employers. Find out more here.
You also be awarded a signed certificate from the University Principal acknowledging your achievements at the annual Student Leaders' Ball which is thrown in your honour!
SIGN UP for the Student Leaders Programme today and meet the Employability Challenge!
Meet new friends, learn new things and develop these ‘employability skills’ so sought after by employers, because you’ll be a graduate before you know it!
