Trevena Cross Nurseries recruited the services of fresh young talent from Falmouth University for its latest business venture.
Producing a new promotional video that showcases the business seemed an ideal fit with local budding film/media students; and with the assistance of Falmouth University’s placement co-ordinators, the idea was straightforward to follow through with.
The level of interest in the opportunity, and the obvious talent of so many film students who shared their portfolios, was a revelation, and refreshing to see.
The valuable contribution that students can clearly make to business is really inspiring, and it’s exciting to think that this talent and enthusiasm is the future for Cornish business, with the right support for local recruitment and new Cornish business start-ups following graduation.
The team that ended up taking on the Trevena Cross promotional video (second and third year students) had indeed already started up their own production company – with unquestionable commitment to film, and professionalism on par with well established, more experienced businesses.
We’d certainly advise others to be open-minded regarding the capability of our business stars of the future. We’ll certainly be in touch with Falmouth University again should we require an injection of fresh young talent in another area of our business – assuming that it’s a mutually beneficial arrangement.
