University Graduate College: Enhancing the experience of Postgraduate Researchers

An employer's view


Ian Robertshaw
Human Resources Manager

"EADS has successfully been recruiting postgraduates from Cardiff University for many years. The company enjoys strong links with both the University and Welsh Government, including the joint research and technology Foundation recently launched. Bringing global opportunities to Cardiff’s doorstep, with offices from Newport to New Delhi and Barcelona to Beijing, EADS is a high tech dynamic company with products ranging from the massive Airbus A380 to the specialised family of cryptography devices: Ectocryp.

"Through our award-winning graduate and apprentice programme, EADS offers Cardiff students the opportunity to stay local at the beginning of their demanding working life. The company recognises the high calibre of students from Cardiff and wishes to continue recruiting from the University. EADS, like the University, has a healthy relationship with the Welsh Assembly Government. This is a perfect example of local government, education and industry working together in a forward-thinking partnership."
