Cathy Little, Recruitment Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers:

  • ‘As one of the UK’s largest recruiters, we find that the students who take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Careers Service are easy to identify through the selection process.’

Sharon Donaldson, Sales Director, Slater Hogg & Howison:

‘Ongoing learning is part of any career and Graduates tend to be open to this concept.  In addition, by their very nature, Graduates tend to have a much better overall education standard and socially mobile, all of which are crucial in the modern business environment.
