Nottingham leads UK-Indonesia careers initiative

The University of Nottingham recently held an event designed to support Indonesian students based at universities across the UK who return to their home country to work after graduating. The event, organised by the Careers and Employability Service and the International Office, reached out to Indonesian students in Britain and encouraged them to take future opportunities in business with Indonesian and British companies.

Panel sessions at the event were designed to offer careers advice on working in business and management, the latest UK visa information and guidance on corporate social responsibility. Students were also provided with opportunities to network with senior executives of the participating companies who sponsored the event. Colleagues from the Careers and Employability Service hosted round-table discussions in the afternoon sessions.

Among the guests were representatives of global businesses with Indonesian subsidiaries, including Jardines Ltd, BP, Shell, McKinsey, Permata Bank, Prudential and Fluor.

Sharon Bell, Associate Director of the Careers and Employability Service, said:

"We were delighted to be able to host over 100 Indonesian students from across the UK at this event. All of the students who attended showed real energy and enthusiasm in developing their employability skills, and it was a great opportunity for us to work closely with the Indonesian Students Society. The attendance of The Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia, His Excellency T M Hamzah Thayeb, underlined the importance of this event."

Vania Gunawan, member of the Indonesia Society at The University of Nottingham and currently studying for a Masters degree in risk management, added:

"This event enables Indonesian students to meet experts in the global business. I believe I will gain plenty of information on skills and experience needed for entering this very competitive area."

The University of Nottingham is the first British higher education institution to host such an event.
