Retail & Logistics
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Bullring is one of Europe's largest city centre shopping centres, attracting around 35 million visitors a year. It houses one of only four Selfridges department stores and the fourth largest Debenhams in the UK. Students will be working alongside volunteers from the Bullring to design new shopping centre features to encourage visitors to stay longer, putting their creativity and teamwork skills to the test.
