A fantastic day at the University of Sussex Spring Careers Fair

Over 400 students attended the fair to speak with local employers about what their options are after graduation, as well as employment opportunities they may have to offer. We were able to speak with a number of students about what we do, what they are looking for, and our Graduate Consultant role.

I joined Assurity Consulting in 2005 straight after graduating from University. The Consultant role is so varied, which I really like. Each day is different, and I am given the flexibility to manage my own time.

- Sophia Richardson, Consultancy Services Deputy Manager

Our Graduate Consultant role develops skills in a number of areas, from technical skills - such as delivering our services and the legal side of health and safety, to commercial skills - such as networking, selling and account management. At Assurity Consulting, we believe in investing in our people, and pride ourselves in the training and opportunities we provide. We also put focus on our employee wellbeing - from the events we throw to celebrate our people, attention to mental health, careers benefits, and career progression.

For Graduates who are looking for a long term career where they would be supported in their professional development, our Graduate Consultant role is a fantastic opportunity.

“The best thing about working at Assurity Consulting is without a doubt… the people. It is a pleasure to work with such a supportive team at Assurity Consulting and I also enjoy building relationships with existing customers. I never underestimate how lucky I am to have a career that enables me to meet new people every day.”

- Jo McNie, Consultancy Services Deputy Manager

We were also able to speak to students at the University of Sussex about how we look after the wellbeing of our employees. From having trained mental health first aiders in our office, to holding social events such as employee lunches, Christmas parties, wellbeing walks and team outings to take part in activities such as roller-skating - we like to give back to our people for all their hard work. We also get involved with our local community, and give our employees one paid day every year to volunteer for a charity of their choice.
