Presswire

[PRESSWIRE] 26 April 2016 – London, United Kingdom -- BT has been selected to appear in a new digital publication entitled Cambridge Strategies, which showcases top employers, educational institutions and digital innovators from around the world, and provides insights into today’s ever-changing professional and academic landscapes.

Published by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) and its official publisher, St James’s House, Cambridge Strategies includes an eBook, website, app and marketing campaign aimed at high-calibre students.

“Cambridge Strategies is a groundbreaking global campaign that delivers thought-provoking content in an interactive and user-friendly format,” says Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House. “The website not only identifies leaders in education and an extensive range of professional opportunities, but also provides a digital platform for discussing some of the most pressing issues within education and employment – such as the increasing need for digital skills.”

The inclusion of BT provides the project with invaluable insight. The company has a long history of successfully recruiting and retaining graduates, announcing recently that it plans to hire an additional 300 this year.

David Linton, Head of Graduate Development at BT, said: “We’re constantly looking to recruit graduates into a diverse number of roles at BT, from cyber security to finance, to TV and broadcasting. We want to attract and recruit the best talent to support our growing business, so it’s great news that we’ve been featured as an ‘employer of choice’ in this guide for students.”

A truly international project, Cambridge Strategies will engage with an informed and influential audience of global talent, including the University of Cambridge’s 22,000 students, members of the Cambridge Alumni Association, more than 50,000 educational institutions from over 190 countries and the senior management of companies on all the major global indices.

“It’s a real privilege to work with CUSU and BT,” says Richard Freed. “BT has a great deal to offer, and we are very pleased to announce its input in this unique digital publication.”
