They have given back to Kent Business School and their local community by volunteering their time to events and charitable activities and raising money for a variety of great causes.’

Vladislav Kozub, Kent Business School student and winner of the Highest Scoring Student from the Medway Campus award said: ‘I would certainly recommend the EP scheme. For receiving important career experience I have not only won an iPad and numerous Amazon vouchers, but I have managed to secure a 3-month paid internship and was lucky enough to be offered a further 12-month Year in Industry Placement. All this will support me in my main goal of securing a role on a graduate scheme at the end of my studies.’

Congratulations to all the Employability Points reward winners from all at Kent Business School.
