Has an outstanding UEA student worked for you?

It could have been in a part-time, placement or internship capacity. Or perhaps you’ve hosted an excellent student volunteer?

If so, UEA CareerCentral wants to hear from you.

Launching next year, the UEA Talent Celebration Event will recognise and showcase excellence in student and business engagement through the presentation of four awards: UEA’s Most Supportive Employer Award, UEA’s Most Supportive Voluntary Organisation Award, UEA Outstanding Student Volunteer Award and UEA Outstanding Student Employee Award.

To nominate a student for an award please visit the UEA website.

The event will take place on 7 May 2019 at the award-winning Sainsbury Centre, UEA, and will be a celebratory evening event with drinks and canapés.

This is to say a big thank you to internal and external partners for the hugely valuable contributions they have made throughout the years, to support student career development.

More information and invites to the event will be sent nearer the time.
