Calling all Ulster University Students: Tweet your way on to the Randox APEX Programme
Are you The One for Randox?
That’s the question Randox Careers are asking first year students this week, with the launch of an innovative new recruitment campaign for their competitive APEX Programme, which employs first year undergraduates across various divisions of the global diagnostics company.
The campaign, named #IAmTheOneUU, which begins this week with a number of recruitment presentations in Ulster University, is taking a fresh approach to the way first years can apply for the APEX Programme, by inviting applicants to submit ‘video auditions’ on social media platforms Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Using a video no longer than 15 seconds and a 140 character cover note, the aim of this unique method of application is to give first year university students the opportunity to succinctly and effectively convey their personality, creativity, initiative and drive, in a lively and imaginative way; displaying why they are ‘The One’ for Randox.
Successful APEX applicants from Ulster University will progress throughout Randox over the course of four years; moving from a summer of paid full-time work experience, to a paid placement year within the company, to ultimately obtaining a full time position at Randox, subject to gaining a 2:1 or above.
The importance of this opportunity cannot be underestimated; with many students having difficulty finding jobs after graduation, the APEX Programme will help 50+ students this year really get their foot on the career ladder, and build relationships with a thriving market leader in the healthcare industry.
Linda Magee, Randox Human Resources Manager, is excited to launch such a novel campaign that resonates so well with first year students;
“The #IAmTheOneUU application process for the Randox APEX Programme is a fresh and dynamic campaign that utilizes the power of social media and harnesses the skills of the tech-savvy generation. Young people of this age are well-acquainted with the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and by using their social media capabilities to display their personality and ambition, they can successfully achieve their career goals in positions ranging from Business and Marketing to Biological and Life Sciences, Graphic Design to Mathematics and Physics, and Engineering to Computer Technology. For busy first years this exciting yet simple method of application is the perfect way for them to introduce themselves to Randox. Get posting – you could be The One!”
Any first year undergraduates at Ulster University who wish to join the Randox APEX Programme should upload a 15 second video with accompanying 140 character note to either Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, making sure to include the hashtag #IAmTheOneUU.
