COVENTRY UNIVERSITY

Tap Into Talent!

Griffiths Waite’s Business Development Director Ian Heathcock was an invited guest speaker at Coventry University’s ‘Tap into Talent!’ event in March 2016. The event held at Coventry Transport Museum saw more than 90 local business leaders networking and sharing experiences of recruiting directly from University. The four guest speakers discussed their respective experiences of placement and graduates students and the opportunities, support and training available. Griffiths Waite have successfully recruited a number of sandwich year industrial placement students together with new graduates and have always been impressed by the overall quality from Coventry.

Ian’s session focused on how Coventry University students have followed a structured training programme and become valuable members of our client project teams. Working under the guidance of experienced peers and highly qualified technical and team leaders students are exposed to all aspects of the software development lifecycle.

This Tap into Talent! Session is one of a number of student and business oriented sessions run by the University that GW have been happy to support.
