The University has secured a partnership agreement with sports retailing giant Decathlon China, securing up to 50 vacancies for Chinese students studying at the University of Liverpool.
The family-owned company will offer the placements at their operations across China to final year undergraduates, postgraduate taught students and those who graduated within the last year. Students will have access to a fast track application process which will give them a decision within three weeks.
The exclusive partnership also gives the University’s postgraduate careers service a unique insight into candidate preferences and selection standards for the programme, enabling the team to provide students with training to help them at the CV screening and interview stages.
Positions include in-store brand and sector managers as well as functional roles for more experienced applicants including finance, HR, and supply chain.
Xiaobei Wu, International Employer Engagement Officer at the Management School, said: “The University is the only official UK partner of Decathlon China, meaning Liverpool graduates now have the ability to undertake a fast track recruitment process at this rapidly expanding retail giant. The agreement highlights how much Decathlon China values the calibre of both our teaching and our graduates.”
