Solent graduates leave businesses 'impressed'

Over 15 talented Solent graduates have already been employed with local businesses such as Totton College and Prysmian Cables & Systems this year, under the Solent graduate business programme.

The programme has run for four years and has been a huge success for the businesses and our graduates. One of the highlighting features of the Solent graduate business programme is that the University contributes £1,400 towards one month’s salary for the Solent graduate.

Finance manager, Andy Lee from KCC is looking forward to working with Southampton Solent University:

“The Solent graduate business programme will give us an opportunity for employing a student with an excellent academic record and a diverse range of practical, industry- focused skills and experience. This would be a great career opportunity for a graduate looking to use their initiative and be given real responsibility.”

This programme has helped businesses get the best talent for their workplace and boosted graduates’ employability by getting their foot in their chosen industry. Additionally businesses have benefited greatly from building strong relationships working with Southampton Solent University.

With plenty of new developments happening at Southampton Solent University, it’s an exciting time to get involved and join the programmes the University has to offer.
