Campbell Urquhart, Managing Director, White Cube Consulting
Why did you get involved with the STAR Award?
Having been involved in managing large scale graduate recruitment and selection campaigns for over 15 years, we have seen the direct benefit students can gain from taking part in activities that enhance learning, skills, knowledge and experience during their time at University. We know programmes such as this can have a direct and very significant impact on participant’s future employability. In my opinion, it is invaluable.
What are the benefits of the STAR Award to you?
While we obviously hope the main benefits are gained by participating students, we have also gained a number of direct benefits ourselves, through areas such as access to potential market research support, graduate placement opportunities, an increased contact network and direct access to future potential graduate talent. I’m still in contact with some of the students from the very first programme we supported and hope that may continue for the long term as students’ progress through their careers…and I’m sure that will lead to further opportunities in the future.
