Business School students transported to a new career


Newcastle University Business School’s Economics graduates Tom Clarke and Tom Hardwick have just been recruited by Nexus for its brand new graduate development programme, which was started to find the best graduates in the region to take the business forward in the future.   

Nexus, the agency that runs the Metro system, as well as the planning and promotion of local transport, has developed the programme to run for two years during which the new recruits work towards a suitable postgraduate qualification with the aim of them being in a position to assume the responsibilities of a senior professional or junior managerial post. 

Tom Clarke will be working in finance and Tom Hardwick will be working in transport planning. Nexus Human Resources Director David Bartlett said ‘The introduction of a graduate development programme will ensure that we continue to have a workforce capable of rising to our long term challenges’ 

The Business Schools careers advisor David Levinson commented ‘I am delighted that two Business School students have been accepted onto this development programme. The Careers Service works closely with Business School students to help them to develop their employability skills and these appointments are another demonstration that Business School students are highly sought after.
