Enactus Reading

  • The team are currently undertaking 5 projects- 1 local project, 3 international projects and 1 commercial fundraising project. 

  • The principal objective of Enactus Reading is to provide a channel whereby students can gain experience working in a business environment, while at the same time improving the quality of life and standard of living for communities and individuals in need.

  • Enactus projects set University of Reading students apart from their peers, by teaching them (through their experiences), the relevant skills to make them more employable in the future.

  • Enactus UK has a variety of sponsor companies, including: Barclays, Amazon, Enterprise, EY, Tesco, Unilever and Accenture. See the full list here: http://enactusuk.org/our-sponsors

  • Our sponsor companies have an application to hire ratio for Enactus UK students of between 45%-85%

  • Enactus students are more desirable to companies as they have gained skills that those who didn't join Enactus missed out on.
