Bedfordshire graduate helps drive company forward

Written by Paula Devine | 11 Dec 2012

Irfan Khan, a business graduate from the University of Bedfordshire, is applying the skills and knowledge he learnt during his degree to the world of work through Arriva UK’s Business Development and General Management Scheme.
The UK company is part of leading global transport and logistics services, Deutsche Bahn AG. Irfan’s 18-month internship is allowing him to gain insights into the different functions of key departments including finance, HR and marketing.

Amanda Harrison, Human Resources Business Partner at Arriva said: “The recruitment team at the University of Bedfordshire were superb in coming out to see me at Arriva. We discussed the HR intern position before advertising it and shortlisting candidates. The whole process was dealt with efficiently and professionally and the quality of candidates was great. I would certainly recommend the University to other organisations and will utilise their services again.”

Irfan is just one example of thousands of students who graduate from Bedfordshire every year with support from the University’s Recruitment Services department who work in partnership with employers free of charge to fill their vacancies.
