New Beginnings for White Horse Employment
New Beginnings for White Horse Employment, thanks to University Student
With reports of graduate employment opportunities decreasing, the need for students to bridge the gap between course and corporate has never been greater. With students seeking valuable experience within the working world, many are opting for a head start, with their final project based firmly in the business world.
Participating with educational projects is highly motivational and White Horse Employment were excited when an Interior Design student, Sarah James, from the University of Teesside, wanted to develop their Grade II listed building into a Recruitment Centre of Excellence giving them Initia Nova new beginnings, for both Sarah and White Horse alike.
The Initia Nova project, was truly inspirational, commented Sarah, the interest derived from working on a building with historic value, the redesign and reformat of the rooms into a more efficient layout whilst in keeping with the Georgian period features in a real business situation was an experience that I have found extremely beneficial for my portfolio and my design career.
The redesign project of the building and the close working relationship Sarah had with the White Horse Employment team saw Sarah become a finalist for the Best Spatial Design, at Sarahs recent graduate display ceremony.
Sarah added, the invaluable experience this project has given me will always influence my career and development, and I want to say a personal thank you to the White Horse Employment team, and already it has made a difference.
Encouraging and developing talent for the future is a rewarding experience for everyone concerned, added Emma Roberts, Support Services Manager of White Horse Employment. Training and projects linked to business provides students with an insight into the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need when starting out on their careers, and also gives companies the opportunity to play an active part in the development of our future workforce.
