Our student consultants aren't only a spare pair of hands for your business. They help businesses to improve their processes and bring new products or services to market.
As post-graduates in their last year of study, they're experienced in their field. Their expertise helps businesses to complete specific projects that they may otherwise struggle to achieve on limited resources.
This expertise and the students' own backgrounds, hobbies, extra-curricular knowledge and interests help businesses to access new ideas, find innovative solutions and produce fit-for-purpose products.
"I loved working on a concrete task and seeing results after the work was done. Having something to work on and create gave me a boost of confidence and I learnt considerably more than if I would've read about something like this." - Andriana Opinca, Dek Student Consultant
DeK's student consultants provide potential opportunities for individual team members in your business to 'act up' or take on a mentorship role - proven to be beneficial for corporate moral.
DeK Student Consultants are also a fantastic way to find future graduates to join your team.
Hiring someone who already knows your business, who has delivered work to the desired standard, and who connects with your mission is much safer than the gamble of regular recruitment.
In short - our student consultancy services can help your business to build capacity, achieve growth, and complete new, exciting projects.
