National Undergraduate Employability Awards 2018 shortlist unveiled

 

The shortlist for the 2018 National Undergraduate Employability Awards has been announced, ahead of the awards which take place in February.

The awards, which in 2018 will be in their ninth year, recognise and reward success achieved by organisations, universities and students in the undergraduate employability market.

There are three shortlists in total: an employer shortlist; university shortlist; and student shortlist.

In addition to the shortlisted entries, two further awards will be handed out – the award for Top Undergraduate Employer, which is based on student-written reviews a company receives on RateMyPlacement.co.uk; and the award for Top Medium-sized Undergraduate Scheme, which recognises a company that employs between three and 19 students on an undergraduate placement, internship, vacation scheme or insight. Organisations must have a minimum of three student-written reviews on RateMyPlacement.co.uk.
