For those that missed it, we were delighted to welcome Gillian Appau to campus today. Gillian was representing SEO London, Sponsors of Educational Opportunity. SEO London specialise in helping industries to rectify the imbalance in the ethnicity of their workforce.
SEO Careers has traditionally focused on helping students from under represented Black and other minority ethnic (‘BME’) communities to secure places on some of the most rewarding and competitive internship and graduate programmes in the UK. They also provide students with a comprehensive training and mentoring platform to ensure their long term success.
Since 2000 more than 80% of the 3,400 BME students they have supported have gone on to secure graduate roles with our partner firms. In 2014 they will be placing students with more than 100 of the UK’s most prestigious employers.
The internships are available in many different industry sectors so there should be something to suit. They all take place during the summer so will not be suitable for those on a two-year accelerated programme. The deadline is November 4 and must be done through their website.
We’ d like to thank Gillian and the SEO London team for visiting us today.
