The NUE Awards: Could you be a winner?

Moira, a member of our Work Experience Team, tells us all about the NUE awards…

Introducing (drum roll please)… the the National Undergraduate Employability awards: celebrating excellence in Undergraduate Employability!

Calling all students! Have you benefitted from work experience within an organisation that has helped you build your confidence, skills and employability?

Employers, have you had a student intern who has made an invaluable contribution to your organisation?


Who can get involved?

The NUE awards are for work experience professionals, employers who recruit student interns, and all student interns who have had experience working with an employer.


What are the NUE Awards?

Brought to you by RateMyPlacement, these prestigious awards celebrate the achievements of outstanding students, universities and employers involved in undergraduate employability throughout the UK.

Students, employers and universities are invited to nominate individuals or organisations that you believe have made an exceptional contribution in the UK undergraduate employability market. There are seventeen awards in total; eight employer, five university and four student awards including Best Intern, Best Small to Medium-sized Employer and Outstanding Contribution to Work Experience.



Nominating an individual or organisation that you think deserves to be recognised is simple and free and gives you a chance to show your appreciation to those who have excelled in the work experience sector. Just visit, select the award or awards you want and submit your nominations.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 11 November at 5pm and the ceremony will be taking place on the 24 February 2017 at etc.venues, 155 Bishopsgate in central London.

Good luck everyone! Pob lwc pawb!
