Placements UK and India Ltd is a company which was started as a UWIC Spinout by two Senior Lecturers in UWIC John Gunson and Mukul Madahar and an Ex-UWIC student Nirmaan Arora. The initial purpose of the company was to enhance the employability of the MBA Graduates form UWIC. The MBA programme in UWIC is one of the largest on-campus MBA programmes in Europe, with over 400 full-time students enrolling every year. The majority of students on the programme are International with almost 85% coming from India. The UK Borders Agency (Home Office) has changed the regulations from June 2007 and the students who successfully complete a post-graduate degree from UK are now granted 2 years Post Study Work (PSW) Visa, which allows them to work full time in organisations with no restrictions (not many companies are even aware of this!). After that they have the opportunity to apply to switch to another visa category (points based system) so they can carry on working. Being tutors on the programme we are close to the learning process and performance of the students and are well aware of their skills.We therefore help to place graduates on contract jobs, internships or project placements. Lately we have started to attract candidates from other top colleges and institutes.
With time the company has started offering various other services. We offer CV services, interview skills and coaching and mentoring from trainee to highest management level. More recently we have also branched out into Executive recruitment and are having success in placing high level candidates on senior management positions or consultant contracts.
For the employers we can offer the service of getting candidate requirements, publicising the requirements to the candidates on our database. We can then help you in shortlisting candidates and arranging interviews. You can arrange to have access to our candidate database and pick the candidates that you might be interested in. If you wish to discuss such options further then please feel free to contact us and we can arrange to meet up.
