Yorkshire Forward Undergraduate Placement Scheme

Within the organisation it is done by offering undergraduate placements. The scheme has been ongoing for a few years and it brings clear benefits such as: new faces with fresh ideas and an energetic culture. Recognising that the undergraduates play a key role for Yorkshire Forward in the future, Chief Executive, Tom Riordan enthusiastically said: “Having met the Undergraduates I have seen first hand the positive impact they are making within the organisation”.  The level and quality of executive support led to Yorkshire Forward winning the National Council for Work Experience Public Sector Award in March 2008.
