We partner with schools and universities to help provide students with the opportunity to get an insight into a real, digital analytics working environment
We are proactive STEM Ambassadors, regularly speaking at STEM events in schools to increase awareness of jobs outside of the more conventional industries. It was through our STEM ambassadorship that we decided to open a summer placement to a St. Ciaran’s, Ballygawley Year 13 student studying business to give them an opportunity to experience work in an agency environment.
“St. Ciaran’s College are delighted to have developed a partnership with GlowMetrics ensuring work placement opportunities for our students. It is essential that young people are exposed to the world of work so that they can make informed decisions when choosing their future career pathways. Joanne has given several St. Ciaran’s students summer internships which not only enhances their CV but has developed essential employability skills which will prepare them for their future. As a rural school it is vital to expose our students to a wide variety of industries and we are delighted to have GlowMetrics as a partner.”Maria Curran I Head of Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance I St. Ciaran’s College
Our 2017 placement student, Ellen Casserly, got in touch recently to let us know she’d been accepted for an apprenticeship at Deloitte following her placement at GlowMetrics:
“I recently got accepted for the Deloitte apprenticeship and having the experience in GlowMetrics over the summer made my application stand out more and helped me get the apprenticeship. GlowMetrics helped me so much and gave me a great experience!.”Ellen Casserly I St. Ciaran's Ballygawley Placement Student 2017
We also have a similar partnership with Queen’s University, Belfast. We provide year-long work placement opportunities to current students and graduates
Our year-long placement partnership with Queens University Belfast started 3 years ago with our first placement student Catriona Henry. Catriona went on to take the position of Enterprise Support Officer in Queens- a role which tasked her to work with students to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills outside of their degree. She ran the very successful Innovateher programme- an entrepreneurial programme for 25 young female ambitious, savvy, entrepreneurial women!
“Working with Glowmetrics is always a very positive experience. The enthusiasm and energy they demonstrate towards the Marketing internship programme is highly evident to the students and Queen’s University. The projects Glowmetrics have supported onsite have been nothing short of excellent.”Lisa Burns I Placement Coordinator I Queen’s Management School
“I applied for a placement with GlowMetrics as part of my Marketing MSc course, through their partnership with Queen’s University Belfast. I learnt a lot about working in Digital Analytics, and developed a number of invaluable skills. The whole experience was fantastic, and I can’t thank everyone at GlowMetrics enough for the opportunity.”Conor Ross I Queen's University Belfast Placement Student 2018
