Make a difference to students from disadvantaged backgrounds – offer work experience and internships
Warwick Advance Programme
Our new Warwick Advance Programme will enable employers to offer work experience and internship schemes to students from certain socio-economic backgrounds and increase their recruitment prospects.
Providing free access to a student consultancy team, the TeamWork Programme brings together a multi-disciplinary, multi-university team of 6 students for four-weeks over the summer. The students work together virtually on a project or challenge facing your organisation, or an area or opportunity that your organisation wishes to explore.
The WMG SME Group continues to deliver its specialist internship programme for SMEs and larger businesses seeking additional resource and expertise to overcome a range of technical and strategic business challenges. Over the last five years, the programme has proved highly successful in placing a number of talented graduates and students into SMEs, working on a range of projects to help businesses increase productivity, improve efficiency, embrace innovation and access new thinking.
Projects usually relate to the core expertise within the WMG SME Group including manufacturing, materials, product development, digital systems, factory 4.0 and automation.
Warwick Volunteers aims to provide an effective link between the University of Warwick and the wider local community by utilising the skills, energy and enthusiasm of our volunteers.
We run a wide variety of projects which benefit the community around the University in Coventry, Leamington, Kenilworth and Warwick. Projects include working with children in schools and after-school clubs, young adults, people with disabilities, and community groups.
The culture at Warwick is very supportive of independent student action, and this has led to the growth of a wide range of successful, well-established and proactive student societies, a significant number of which focus on particular professions and careers, and provide opportunities for employers to interact specifically with their members.
As these activities are student-led, fall within the Students Union structure and are therefore separate from University governance and quality assurance procedures, we refer on any employers interested in engaging with student societies.
Established at the University of Warwick in 1997, Unitemps is the University owned complete recruitment solution, providing temporary full and part time opportunities on campus and with local commercial businesses for students, graduates and people from the local community.
Warwick’s Employer Connect team offers a portfolio of tried and tested services which enable you to raise your organisation’s profile, communicate your opportunities effectively to students, and facilitate a strong and successful relationship with Warwick students.
We encourage you to work closely with us so that we can recommend the most appropriate services for your organisation. Our advice is informed by regular feedback from students, internal departments and recruiters. We understand what works best on campus including the intricate factors that make a successful campaign. Through understanding your business, we are able to offer you an individual service, which will optimise your recruitment success at Warwick.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
Work with the University to transfer our knowledge to your business through a graduate.
If you are a Warwick graduate, you can take part in our e-mentoring scheme.
If you are an employee, why not share your career experience and make a difference to students from disadvantage backgrounds through mentoring on Advancing your Strengths Mentoring programme supporting students from underrepresented, low income, first generation, social mobility & minority backgrounds. The objectives are to enable students to grow in confidence, develop personal and professional skills.
