marketing Aston University, its courses, placement year opportunities and students to potential graduate employers
providing advice, information, help and university contacts to graduate employers planning their recruitment activity
Christine Cartwright, Graduate Recruitment Officer, Accenture
“A number of graduates from Aston University have joined Accenture to begin their career in consulting… many have joined after graduating, and some have completed a 12 month industrial placement which has led to a permanent offer of employment.
The continuous success of students is due to excellent academic records, combined with good teamwork and communication skills which have been developed through their studies. If you want a challenging career that will enable you to fulfill your potential while keeping your options open, Accenture can offer you innovative and flexible career opportunities.”
Clare Timothy, Business Development Manager, Unilever

The Unilever Companies’ Management Development Scheme (UCMDS) offers a challenging, complex and sophisticated working environment to anyone seeking a meaningful career in business.”
