Find Your Future Talent
For the first time The Studio in Bath is delighted to be hosting an employability focused event on Tuesday 18th October. This is an opportunity for local businesses to discuss the benefits of working with Bath Spa University’s creative talent.
We will be discussing the various employment routes for businesses, whether it’s employing for the first time to work on a live project, or understanding how to create an internship or apprenticeship programme for young graduates.
Bath Spa University’s Careers & Employability team will provide details on how sole traders, freelancers and larger businesses can connect with students and graduates and how to create a meaningful working relationship that benefits both parties.
The panel will be hosted by Matt Emeny who will be talking to members of the placement, careers and employment team as well as Studio Residents and recent Bath Spa University graduates. They will be discussing the practicalities of employing for the first time, whether this is a paid member of staff or an intern.
