UCEE project looking for researchers

UoN logoSubmitted by Lynn Finn

The University Centre for Employability & Engagement (UCEE) is working on a short-term project “Behind the Scenes” to raise the profile of the sector covered by Asset Skills (cleaning, facilities management, car parking, housing and property). The sector is currently composed of an aging workforce and it is struggling to make the sector appear more attractive and therefore recruit graduates into it even though no business can operate without the services that make them work smoothly.

As part of the project funding, there is the potential to run two short-term (60 hours) research projects that would help the sector: one looking at the students and their perceptions of the sector and another looking at how the sector presents itself and how it could make itself more attractive to those it is trying to attract into it.

The payment for undertaking these projects would be £600 per project. If you are interested, please contact Lynn Finn (, call her on 01604 892937 or by pop into MY111 at Avenue.
