After a successful placement last year with a student from the University, Hannah Christie, a Media and Marketing student now joins the company
The placement will see Hannah working with Nikki Towler, Marketing Executive for virtualDCS who also studied Media and Marketing at Leeds Trinity University.
“Working with virtualDCS will enable me to gain industry experience that will not only aid my degree and develop my professional skills, but also help me to attain my dream job after leaving university. I’m really enthusiastic about getting involved within the company and their marketing efforts” commented Hannah.
During the six week professional placement programme Hannah will gain marketing experience by completing a variety of tasks including content creation, market research and social media management.
Richard May, Managing Director of virtualDCS said:
“At virtualDCS, we recognise the value of working with students and Universities. Offering work placements not only benefits virtualDCS and the students, but also the economy. With the latest growth figures showing 2.51 million individuals unemployed any experience that can benefit an individual in future is vital. For Hannah, one of the additional benefits of joining the virtualDCS team, is that our Marketing Executive has in-depth experience of Hannah’s course, so we are even more confident that we can provide a placement that will benefit her long-term” continued Richard.
Jess Sewter, Employer Partnership Manager for the University said: “We are delighted and very grateful to virtualDCS for supporting our placement programme and providing our students with the degree relevant experience and sector knowledge that graduate employers look for. From their time at virtualDCS our students gain valuable marketing and social media skills and a fresh insight into the Cloud Computing Industry. I’m sure Hannah’s placement will be a success thanks to the positive approach to placements held by Nikki Towler and all at virtualDCS.”
