The KTP programme enables companies to face the tough times ahead by working in partnership with their local university in order to develop their business output.
Currently ranked top in the West Midlands for the number of KTPs it manages and third in the UK, the University is continuing to be successful.
Marc Fleetham KTP Manager said: “KTP is the UK’s largest and most successful graduate employer.
“West Midlands companies are recognising the need to invest for the long term and that is where a local university can help. By putting a graduate at the heart of a company to drive innovation, organisations emerge leaner and stronger with the ability to capture a great profitable market share.”
The new KTP announced this week is with PS Office Supplies Ltd, based in Birmingham.
The company is looking to recruit a Web Development Manager for the development of a web portal interface which will help the company secure a greater market share in the “lifestyle” sector. They also hope to increase their turnover and profitability as a result of the partnership.
