In 2017, ANZ partnered with RMIT School of Communications and gave students an insight into the working world.
“[Businesses] get the chance to identify talent and see the skills of the students [which] is a real benefit to anyone who is hiring,” said Shand. She said giving students the opportunity to present to corporations, to communicate with a client and produce real work gives businesses a feel for what the next generation can offer.
“I have to say, there's more than one place where you find value in a partnership like this,” said Reid. “As a hiring manager, I loved having a bird's eye view of the next generation of professionals. It gave us an insight into the types of talent that were coming through.”
Shand said “I think one of the reasons why these projects are great is because it can be messy - the real world isn't just packaged up in a nice assignment brief.”
