Here at the University of East London we understand diversity of talent and diversity of thought.
That’s because our students aren’t your usual recruits: with 158 nationalities represented, 70% from black and ethnic minority backgrounds and 45% the first in their family to go to university.
What’s more, they’ve benefited from our Mental Wealth Programme, giving them the resilience and soft skills to thrive in the rapidly changing world of work.
Your company gets a competitive edge by recruiting diverse thinkers with different viewpoints based on different life experiences. This drives customer understanding, innovation, knowledge and profits.
Together we can remove the barriers that have traditionally stood in the way of our students being recruited by top employers such as yourselves.
That’s why we’ve established our Diversity of Thought Employer Partnership Programme.
This two-year programme brings our top employers and our finest students together on a bespoke pathway of engagement, involving mentoring and work experience, based on your needs and capacity to provide support.
This is a mutually beneficial way for students to showcase their talent and for your organisations to increase your brand awareness and your reach and to understand the benefits of having a diverse talent pipeline.
We will work closely with you to co-create a tailored programme of interventions that will provide students with insight about your organisation, your recruitment processes and the skills necessary to secure graduate employment with your organisation or within the industry.
