Pitch it! event helps Kent Business School student land a job

Kent Business School MSc student Carl Lincoln has just secured a full -time job as a Marketing Assistant at the Ashford-based high-end design and manufacturing company Integrated Technologies (ITL) Ltd.

ITL is one of a number of regional companies who have partnered with the Business School’s Pitch it! scheme to set real-life business challenges to teams of students, who pitch their ideas and solutions for the company to consider.

Carl’s team so impressed Tom Cole, CEO of ITL, that Carl was invited for interview and offered a job.

Tom Cole said “It was a great pitch from a young team that was so well motivated and full enthusiasm. We are always looking for staff that have the right attitude to work and it was a pleasure to interview Carl Lincoln.”

Integrated Technologies Ltd is the name behind the biggest brands in Medical Diagnostics Instrumentation. Chief Executive Tom Cole told the Kent Business School how the established Ashford firm is called upon to bring cutting-edge products to market, at times taking them from initial concept right through to mass manufacture and distribution.

“We are a well-established high-tech Medical Manufacturer looking forward to a healthy future and I would like to welcome Carl into our marketing team. He has a great future at Integrated Technologies Ltd.”

Carl Lincoln who is just finishing his MSc in Value Chain Management said this about his Pitch it! experience:

“Working on a real- life case study adds a whole new dimension to academic work. The Pitch it! challenge helped me to see the significance and applicability of what we learn in lectures, plus a bit of healthy competition has certainly shown us a bit of what to expect when we start work. Well done to my team mates and the other groups, all of which came up with fantastic ideas.”

“I’m looking forward to working at ITL”, said Carl “It is a new role within the company which will give me a level of scope and responsibility that is not often available to new graduates, also it’s great to know I will have a job lined up as soon as I leave the Business School.”
