Reaping the benefits of a work placement at Wildwood

By Rosie Lincoln, Bournemouth University student

I began my placement year with Wildwood in 2018, and thus far, it has probably been the most memorable and invaluable experience that I’ve had in my four years of university. Taking on a year-long work placement was optional, but I chose this route because university is so much more than just a degree. It’s very important for you to be able to stand out from the crowd and offer future employers more than other candidates have to offer and doing a work placement provides this differentiator.

ISE AVIXA Networking Event

Are Networking Events the New Press Conference?

By Becky Vance, Digital Manager

As official sponsors of the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) press office, the Wildwood team was out in force at ISE 2020, from the 10th to 14th February. We have several clients on the show floor, so the team were busy accompanying media to stands, talking business, and making new contacts.
