Testimonials

“We are really pleased to be a part of the UKESF and it is a great service. If you haven’t got a lot of experience in attracting graduates, UKESF should be the first place you go. Our scholar said they would have never approached XMOS if they hadn’t gone through UKESF.”

Heather Overbury, former Office Manager, XMOS

“The UKESF is the body responsible for skills and education in the UK Electronics sector. They do a lot of screening so some of the work experience coaching is done prior to us seeing the scholars. We’ve been really impressed with the quality of people coming through the UKESF.”

Jon Marsh, Director of Engineering
Development, ARM

“The UKESF raises the profile of electronic engineering and provides the best students from the best universities to companies looking for interns. Students benefit from having a great experience in the workplace, so it’s a win-win for everyone. We have had some excellent students and have four to five ex-scholars now working with us that came from the UKESF scheme. Seeing how they mature and develop over their time with us is really rewarding.”

“We have seen many excellent students through the UKESF Scholarship Scheme, which is why we continue to support the UKESF programme and we look forward to our next cohort of scholars.”

“The UKESF is great because we don’t have to go anywhere near graduate recruitment centres, which can be a horrendous experience! The UKESF reaches out to everyone on our behalf and broadens access to universities. It attracts the best students, which is what we need, and past scholars are great to attract new students.”
