COMPANY COMMENTS

"In translation work it is vital that we have mother-tongue input whenever possible. The students from Eagle UK give us the opportunity to produce first-class documentation, with an extremely high level of quality. In return we offer the student the chance to carry out "real" tasks in the work environment and become a valuable member of the team. The fresh approach they bring is important for us to continuously improve the way we work and although the work is hard and the level of responsibility is sometimes great, I feel the students benefit more from this type of experience."

"We were so impressed by Bianca Baust, who helped to pull together the multi country stand at Automechanika, that we have arranged for her to stay on longer to work on other projects. Eagle UK were a great help in arranging the placement and in minimizing the bureaucracy. I would have no hesitation in endorsing the value of this and other student placement programmes."

Deputy Director Southern Europe

"I have found Eagle UK to be a valuable source of young talent. The last person for instance worked as my personal assistant for nine months on the Waterside project, which is the new British Airways head office building. He is now seeking permanent employment with the company and I am confident he will be successful."

Human Resources Manager

"The British Chamber of Commerce, International Division was highly delighted with the efficient and professional way in which the Eagle UK Work Experience Programme was able to select and arrange the placement of an overseas business student for us. The calibre and expertise of the student was first class and exactly met our requirements. The benefits of this programme to companies who are facing communication problems (both written and oral) with their non-English clients or suppliers are clear and immediate. We will have no hesitation in returning to Eagle UK when we next have a similar requirement."

 "We, at Pioneer Weston have accepted five students in our organisation and I can honestly say their time with us has been an asset to our business, especially their linguistic skills. I am sure they gained a valuable insight into how a small British engineering company operates. We would not hesitate to recommend the course of action that we have had such positive results from."

Amber Leisure is a specialist manufacturer of sauna and solarium projects. For its expansion drive over the last few years it has looked increasingly towards the close continental Europe. As a relatively small company with limited resources it has been essential to adopt a gradual, step by step approach. To this end the utilization of student placements via Eagle UK has and continues to play an important role in the areas of information gathering and communication. The company has benefited from the low cost translations etc. The students have enjoyed an active role within the growth strategy of a young and vibrant organisation. This "two way street" is a vital part of the success of any such undertaking."

As a Worldwide supplier with Europe being one of the key markets of S.I. Pressure, we have made considerable use of the resources provided to us by Eagle UK. We like to take students for a training period with a view to the possible opportunity of offering full-time employment, subject to performance. We currently have three students and three full time employees, who originally came to us as students through Eagle UK. We have found, over the last 7 years, that if you have a need for people then Eagle UK will come up with options for you and on a cost-benefit appraisal the results will be surprisingly positive.

Over the past 4 years, the Marriott Royal Hotel has used the services of Eagle UK for work placement students. All the students who have entered this programme have had a good understanding of English and have been very professional. Their skills and ability have been at a high level and with anything new that has been shown, they have picked this up quickly. Most of the students, on completing their training, have decided to stay with ourselves for a longer period of time as a full-time employee, which has been really valuable. All our dealings with Eagle UK have been quick and efficient and I would highly recommend this service to other employers."
