University of Sunderland – Uni4Talent / Hope Street Xchange

The U4T team have been amazing! They have been super helpful and supportive in my graduate job search. They were great at every stage of the search – suggesting suitable roles, assisting with applying for roles, preparing you for interviews and providing feedback. The prep sessions they offer are really great and really help when going in for an interview.
I had the opportunity to work within the U4t team which then led onto to me working for the Hope Street Xchange team. Working with U4T really helped to boost my confidence and communication skilled. It was also very valuable to learn about the recruitment process and the type of thing employers ask for/ look for in a candidate. I feel like it learned something valuable from each of the team members as well as many transferable skills and knowledge.
After working for U4T I was kindly put forward to work for HSX. I really enjoyed my time at HSX. Again I believe being in this role helped me to build on my communication skills as well as marketing and contenting writing skills.

Sunderland City Council

“My internship led me to gain valuable experience and knowledge within the Local Authority to assist me with my future legal career. I have been fortunate enough to bag myself a full-time role within the Council, having successfully passed the interview process and I can’t thank the Uni4Talent team enough for opening this door for me.

I would 100% recommend this service and it has been a pleasure having an internship through Uni4Talent.”

“I worked with the Uni4Talent team in 2018 to gain experience in the film and media industry. The team’s support and guidance from the start was invaluable, allowing me to gain paid work with a local employer. Because of this, I have just secured a Graduate Level Job with a company in Newcastle. Thanks to Duncan and the team for everything.
