"Teach First looks for exceptional graduates with the drive, resilience and creativity to really make a difference. We have been very impressed with the quality of applicants from Warwick to date,  which is why we keep coming back. We recruit from a variety of degree backgrounds at Warwick and candidates consistently show the competences required for our demanding scheme. We look forward to welcoming many more Warwick graduates in the coming years!"

Belinda Shufflebotham, Teach First

"Warwick University is one of 12 ‘gold’ universities that we target for graduate recruits. Out of these universities, Warwick received ten per cent of our job offers last year. We find Warwick graduates to be hard working, motivated and dedicated. This suits our company as we only hire people who we believe will grow and develop to become our future senior managers."

Aileen Bechtloff, Procter & Gamble

"We have recruited a number of students from Warwick University. These students come from a wide variety of degree backgrounds and demonstrate key skills and competences that we look for. As a major employer of graduate trainees, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP recognises the important role played by the University in producing high calibre, motivated individuals, who are ready to enter the world of financial services."

Balli, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP

"We look for well-rounded candidates with a wide range of skills, experiences and attributes. We find that students from Warwick are able to demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills, which are essential."

Melanie Lee, Midlands graduate recruitment leader, Accenture

"The reason we invest a high proportion of our recruitment budget and time at Warwick is because of the high quality of student we know we can expect."


"Students at Warwick are given a head start in the career planning through the excellent service provided by the Careers Service. The high quality of students is evidenced by the fact that Warwick always features in the top 10 universities from which Unilever recruits."


"The ability to take control of your own career is vital in the 21st century and what better place to start the process of planning your career than at university? It is never too early to start thinking about what you will do after graduation. That doesn’t necessarily mean having a specific career in mind from day one. However, you should recognise that university is not going to last forever – while there, you should take every opportunity to maximise the benefits. "

Carl Gilleard, chief executive, Association of Graduate Recruiters
