Businesses have long talked about needing ‘work ready’ graduates and the importance of the right skills, but, looking forward, in a world full of uncertainties, the need for a high potential, employable talent pool becomes increasingly important to businesses across the UK.
Universities are brimming full of untapped undergraduate talent, despite this, many are often confined to student bar work or shelf stacking whilst studying with some choosing not to work at all. The result? Graduates with insufficient ‘real world’ work experience and an unequipped, lacklustre talent pool are missing the crucial soft skills needed for a trailblazing competitive employment sector.
Toptask here to help with a solution.
The premise of the platform is simple: connecting businesses or individuals that need skilled services with hard-working, talented undergraduates and graduates from world class universities who have a proven track record of delivering high quality work.
