“The service Unitemps offered was great, providing a skilled student on a variable hour’s contract to meet our project needs. With their support, we have developed an exciting innovation with fantastic possibilities. The whole process was quick and easy too, with very competitive rates.” (Jack Sherrin, Managing Director, Aptus)

“We had an excellent CCCU student working on a project for a local company. Their project was looking at an industry-related problem researching solutions for their manufacturing processes. The project was completed in the university Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab in Discovery Park at Sandwich. The results from the project provided new knowledge and scope to improve the company’s manufacturing processes.” (Cornelia Wilson, Reader / Academic Laboratory Director in the School of Psychology and Life Sciences, CCCU)
