"Durham is a target University for Rolls-Royce because of the high calibre, high quality graduates it produces.

The School's placement programme gave us the opportunity to develop a relatively new role within the team. Dwayne brought the necessary skill set to be able to scope the role, implement a draft accountability profile and pass on his knowledge to other members of the team. He was able to gain a broad range of professional experience, whilst working with a wide variety of people within Rolls-Royce and our revenue sharing partners."

“We have thoroughly enjoyed having a placement student from Durham University Business School within our organisation. The student exhibited a keen willingness to learn and benefit from the experience at all times during the 12 months with us. That dedication is testament to both the individual concerned and to the placement preparation provided by DUBS.”
