The Lancaster award can give you valuable opportunities to work with and meet key regional and national employers. Representatives from the following companies are proud to endorse the award and colleagues from a number of these companies may be on the interview panel during the award assessment process.
This is a significant opportunity to gain an understanding of what real employers will be looking for in their selection process.
Simon Johnson from Hallmark Cards endorses the Lancaster Award:
"I recently interviewed a Lancaster undergraduate who explained that she was undertaking the Lancaster Award to increase her 'employability'. That undergraduates from Lancaster take part in a proactive scheme to gain new life experiences, to improve job-seeking skills and to make themselves more attractive to employers can only be positive. Whilst quality of the person, not the Award itself, is what counts most, it reinforces my view as an employer that Lancaster students take their future working lives, not just their education, seriously. Keep it up!!"
