"In recent years, we’ve employed two graduates from the Hugh Baird University Centre, Emma Livesey and Sharon Hay. Both have been fantastic examples of employability and are already proving themselves within IKEA. Emma is currently on an international project in Japan which, for someone only in the business two years, goes to show how prepared she was for the position. In today’s competitive jobs market, anything that makes a candidate stand out from the crowd at interview is invaluable and the experience the undergraduates gain on the degree course here definitely adds to that employability. Determination is also a key factor; both Emma and Sharon displayed great motivation and drive and knew exactly what they wanted from their career when they left university."

Elliot Higgins, Communication and Interior Design Manager at IKEA Group.
