His job, to present the Retail Executive Recruitment Award for Retail Student of the Year to Amy Keeling, final year student at Oxford Brookes University.
Peter and RXR are proud to support this initiative to reward students for their research and study so were delighted to sponsor the award for the fourth year running in 2009. Peter met with the winning student to present her retail certificate and a cheque for 250 for personal achievement.
Amy won the award due to outstanding performance in her final year in retail management, and particularly in retail strategy. Peter was delighted to meet Amy and her family at her graduation. He said:
I am proud to be involved in supporting the retailers of the future. My involvement in this award is not only personally rewarding but also helps Retail Executive Recruitment keep abreast of industry trends, and how new entrants to the retail market are developing.
Sponsoring this award is just one of the ways RXR have formed a partnership with Oxford Brookes. As well as sponsoring this award, Retail Executive Recruitment also contribute to the curriculum by running workshops to equip students with practical skills which will be invaluable in their future careers, e.g. strategy planning, time-management. Peter also regularly organises for clients to come into Oxford to offer tutorials on various retail issues, giving students a feel for retail management in the real world.
RXR are looking forward to further developing links and connections with the Retail education team at Oxford Brookes, and meeting more future retail stars in 2010.It is a pleasure to meet the students as they graduate and to aid in their career development by contributing to the Oxford Brookes seminars and lectures. I am sure Amy and many of her Oxford co-graduates have a shining career in retail ahead of them.
