Sci-Tech Daresbury appoints university ambassador

University of Liverpool’s Rudy Parengal will act as a student ambassador to promote the opportunities for placement opportunities at Sci-Tech Daresbury companies

Sci-Tech Daresbury has appointed the University of Liverpool’s Rudy Parengal as student ambassador to help strengthen the bonds between the two organisations.

Mr Parengal, currently studying for a master’s degree in International Business at the University, has been chosen for the role in order to help showcase the opportunities available at the national Sci-Tech Daresbury campus to his fellow students.

The two organisations are working together in order to help nurture the latest graduates and postgraduate students at the university, raise awareness of the job and placement opportunities at Sci-Tech Daresbury companies.

He will undertake a series of initiatives in order to promote the campus’ offers to graduates and postgraduates, with a particular focus on students studying in areas including computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, marketing & business, life science and chemistry.

Through social media and on-line activity on the university campus, Mr Parengal will liaise with students studying relevant subjects in order to promote the opportunities on site and those coming up in the near future.

A scheduled tour of the campus by current students was recently rearranged as a webinar following the nationwide lockdown. Attended by over 45 students, participants were able to quiz several companies located on site about their work and what it’s like to work within a thriving science and technology hub.

Businesses that took part included Rosslyn Data Technologies, Livful and Medication Management, with the companies represented by both senior management and colleagues who joined the companies as graduates or placement students. They were able to share what life in these high-tech companies was like and the rewarding career opportunities that their roles have brought.

Mr Parengal said: “There are so many exciting businesses working at Sci-Tech Daresbury and the offices and lab spaces are hugely impressive – when I first visited I was really inspired by seeing so many forward thinking businesses often working in close collaboration to pioneer the technologies of the future.

“I’m thrilled that I’m able to help spread the word about why Sci-Tech Daresbury is the perfect place for University of Liverpool graduates and postgraduates to fulfil their potential in an exciting and dynamic working environment.”
