Flint Bishop were delighted to support the University of Derby ‘Student Placement Awards Ceremony’ on 29th January.
Commercial Partner, Claire Tonks, presented the awards to the students at The Hub, in recognition of the successful completion of their year-long work placements.
Claire Tonks said, “It was a great opportunity to meet some of the students who had completed the placement programme and to hear about their experiences and the benefits that the placement had bought to them. They had all obtained employment as a result of their placement and all felt that it was very beneficial to the development of their employability skills. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event working with the University of Derby and their placement students. Each winner had a great story to tell about their journey and how it had assisted them in their search for a graduate job.”
