LOOKOUT! the independent research and insights organisation based in Manchester city centre, which is based at Manchester Metropolitan University’s award winning Innospace offices, is celebrating its ongoing collaboration with Manchester’s universities.
Since moving into its city centre offices earlier this year, LOOKOUT! has employed several students from both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University to take on a range of projects for the business.
Eugene Tansey, founder of LOOKOUT! comments,
“In my mind, one of the reasons why Manchester is the most dynamic city in Britain and possibly Europe, is the dynamic student base which Manchester and Greater Manchester’s universities attract and the pool of talent it generates year in and year out. Our decision to locate our business in the city centre gives us more opportunities to access this talent, and I am looking forward to providing aspiring young professionals with more opportunities to learn and develop their skills and attributes.”
Since moving into the Innospace office, LOOKOUT! has ran 5 projects with universities in Manchester and Greater Manchester.
“For our biggest project, we have had two international MBA students (Shomayla and Nicolas) from India and Chile respectively, working with us on a global feasibility project, which saw them work with our research team for 3 months. And this month we have started three projects with undergraduate students from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University respectively – who are working with us in a number of areas, including our own Digital, PR and Comms strategy as part of our “Vision Tomorrow” project. This is focused on developing research and insight products designed to help achieve the business leaders’ objectives of tomorrow”
