Leeds Beckett University Computing Society has forged a partnership with Corecom Consulting, a Leeds-based IT Recruitment Consultancy – the very first of its kind.
The Society, led by President and second year Business Information Technology (BA) student, Lewis Ford, will be taking advantage of free access to careers and employability advice from Corecom Consulting. The company will also be providing students with mentorship, professional networking opportunities and talks and advice from industry experts.
Maria Dobrzanska, Employer Engagement Consultant at Leeds Beckett University says: “This initiative is a first for Leeds Beckett University. We are delighted to have a local Leeds-based business working in partnership with one of our student societies.
“Corecom Consulting’s vast experience and knowledge has already contributed to the progression of students here at the University and we are excited to extend our partnership with the company even further, for the benefit of students.”
Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director at Corecom Consulting (pictured left), comments: “As a graduate of Leeds Beckett University, it is a real honour for me to give something back to the University and its students. As a company, Corecom Consulting is committed to increasing student employment prospects.
“The importance of developing strong employability skills reaches far beyond fashioning a clear, structured CV. Being able to converse, network and interact with like-minded professionals is invaluable experience, and something that I am confident will benefit Computing Society students a great deal.
“The earlier students start to network with industry professionals, the more likely they are to have a wealth of connections when they start to look for a work placement or embark on their chosen profession.”
