A series of new partnerships are creating graduate career opportunities.

Wrexham Glyndwr University is forging ahead with Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) to enable firms to transfer and introduce expertise from the academic world into their business.

The university has been successful in securing its third KTP in just over a year with Wurkplace Ltd.

This KTP is currently recruiting for a systems developer to enable Wurkplace to integrate new technology and knowledge into their business, by creating a bespoke interactive all-in-one compliance and employee management system integrated with AI technology.

Mark Whitfield, director at Wurkplace, said: "We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Wrexham Glyndwr on this project.

"Working with academia is important to us as a company as it gives us access to a pool of expertise and visions, as well as still allowing us to have full control over the product created for the full benefit of our business."

Wrexham Glyndwr also has two current KTPs with Unimaq Ltd in Wrexham and Envirohire Ltd in Corwen, employer graduates to lead their projects, and have recently submitted their fourth proposal to add to their partnerships.

Laura Gough, head of enterprise at Wrexham Glyndwr, said: "We are committed to partnering with local and regional businesses to support them in their growth and innovation.

"KTPs are a very strong part of that process and allow businesses to fully access the expertise of our graduates and our academics together.

"Our work with KTPs has grown significantly in part due to the creation of our Innovation Ladder which allows businesses to take a step approach to working with us, from short-term feasibility studies through to strategic projects such as KTPs.

"In addition businesses can work with us to develop their staff through CPD opportunities, short courses and also network with us and other businesses through our regular business breakfasts and other events.

"All of these opportunities allow us to gain better insight into what businesses require and provides them with the opportunity to feedback and discuss with us their needs which then allows us to find an initiative that suits their requirements."
