How much is expected from an Agency Life Employer?

MMU Agency Life

In order for Agency Life to work properly, we need to make sure you know what to expect. We’ve mentioned what you can expect from our students in our post about projects but we also need you to know what we and the students need from you. It’s not very onerous.

New Agency Life Internships: The Candidate & Evolution Recruitment Solutions

We’re really pleased to announce the addition of 2 new Agency Life employers.

First up is Agency Life programme stalwart – The Candidate. Colin at The Candidate has long been a supporter of our programme, and recently employed Harriet Wright (who finished this year) who was one of the first ever Agency Life students. Harriet will be managing the programme for The Candidate – it’s nice to see a natural progression from learning to employment and Harriet is a natural example for students to see how beneficial this programme is.

And new to the Agency Life project is Evolution Recruitment Solutions – they are based in Warrington and this exciting opportunity might appeal to students looking for experience outside of the traditional agency environment and who may be based out towards that part of the region. Evolution have been working with one of our students as part of the MMU xChange Programme.
