If your organisation would benefit from a team of bright and creative students looking at an area of your business over a 5 week period, the Nottingham Consultancy Challenge might be able to help. The Challenge runs each year on each of the University of Nottingham’s UK campuses and matches teams of up to 5 students with local charities and businesses to solve a problem. The teams comprise students from a range of courses and year of study and can look at a variety of projects, from marketing to project evaluation and all things in between.
One of this year’s companies had a team looking at its social media presence and commented:
“Overall the project was excellent; well researched and executed. The outputs are relevant and we will be making greater use of the online world.”
Another organisation whose team supported them to evaluate a project said:
“I think the work the students have done is excellent and we are very pleased to have had the opportunity to take part in such an innovative scheme.”
To be involved we need a project brief and a commitment to attend a briefing session and end of project presentation.
Recruitment of organisations for the 2017/18 challenges is underway, so if you’d like to register an interest or find out any more about the project, contact Jacqui.firstname.lastname@example.org.
