Green Global Solutions has taken steps to secure its future with an investment in two scholarships of four years through the University of NSW’s 2015 Co-op Program due to the immense value Green Global Solutions CEO & Founder, Bob Sharon places on supporting bright students in reaching their full potential.
“Almost anything can be achieved with the innovation and collaboration of the world’s most talented students combined with support from business wishing to improve the way we live, work and learn.”
In response to industry demand, the UNSW Co-op Program offers up to 100 industry-sponsored scholarships a year providing students with financial aid, the opportunity to apply their university learning to practical on the job applications, and gain valuable work experience that may prove instrumental when entering the full-time job market.
“While students are not bonded to their industry sponsors, more than 80 per cent go on to work for them,” says Kaye Carey, Co-op manager for UNSW. Research has also found that 90 per cent of graduates completing a co-op program found work-related employment within one month of beginning their job search, compared to 19 per cent of graduates who didn’t undertake a co-op.
The $34,000 per annum (4 years) commitment by Green Global will be worth every penny. Sharon enjoys the mentoring side of working with young talent to build strong relationships which he hopes will lead to ongoing employment with Green Global Solutions after completion of the Co-op Program.
Green Global is a unique infrastructure and energy services company with a focus on sustainability.
