CBI member Huawei celebrated its first 15 years in helping to build a better connected U.K. During the commemorative event, attended by over 400 customers, partners, government representatives, and media stakeholders, Huawei announced that it is launching an alumni programme to further support U.K. undergraduates who have participated in “Seeds for the Future”.
The “Seeds for the Future” programme, now in its sixth year, sends U.K. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) students to China for a month to help promote STEM careers and skills as well as forge a better understanding and closer links between the U.K. and China.
The alumni programme will provide technology workshops and networking events as well as career advice and opportunities for undergraduates who have participated in the programme to help further develop skills and talent.
Huawei also confirmed that it will recruit eight new graduates in 2016, following on from the seven graduates successfully recruited in 2015. The eight new graduates will join in September, when they will embark on a programme designed to develop their understanding of the company’s core products and solutions.
The new recruits will rotate through different departments and roles, gaining understanding and experience of the company’s overall operations in the U.K., before joining a specific team and working on a delivery project.
