Search starts for student employee of the year

A popular prize-giving aims to shine a light on students in work

The search is now on for the Student Employee of the Year 2014.

Glyndŵr University will again join education providers in nominating students who successfully combine part-time work with their academic achievements.

The best will compete for the national SEOTY title this summer.

Angela Corbett, careers centre administrator at the Wrexham-based university, is urging businesses in the region to put forward employees for the prize, organised by the National Association of Student Employment Services (NASES).

“This is an opportunity to reward the outstanding contribution our students make to the local economy and to the University while studying for their degrees,” said Angela.

“Students can add something to a business and the growth in these awards over the last 12 years proves that.”

She added: “Here at Glyndŵr University the careers team works closely with the students to give them the best possible chance of getting a job when they graduate.

“Work experience, placements and external employment play a big part in that and show why the University has one of the UK’s best graduate employment rates.”

Among the prizes up for grabs are £100, a framed certificate and admission to the SEOTY alumni network.

Closing date for applications is April 17. For more information, visit or email
