BUCS is delighted to announce a new partnership with global brand Amazon to provide exciting career opportunities for student athletes across higher education.

One of the world’s biggest businesses, Amazon are looking for tomorrow’s leaders and have joined forces with BUCS to support talented student athletes with finding a career path.  

Throughout the year long partnership, BUCS and Amazon will work together to promote events such as Amazon Discover. Run by Amazon, these events will provide students studying a range of degrees a first-hand look at what it is like to work at Amazon and what they are looking for in their graduate scheme applications.  
Studies show students who play sport at university achieve higher academic results as well as have enhanced leadership, communication, time management, resilience, and confidence. BUCS is pleased Amazon recognise the talents across the membership, valuing the higher education sport sector as a pathway for talented future employees. 
Vince Mayne, BUCS CEO, commented on the partnership: “We are very excited to be partnering with a huge global brand such as Amazon. Sport provides the opportunity for students to develop skills that many top employers look for when recruiting, and we are pleased to have Amazon on board to create a new pathway for engaging talented students. I look forward to seeing the activity across the partnership and to see a strong BUCS cohort employed by Amazon over the next few years.”  
Paul Sobers, Campus Attraction and Engagement Manager at Amazon said: “Amazon are thrilled to be partnering with British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) for the next year. We recognise BUCS is a central pillar to so many students' university experience, providing exceptional opportunities on and off the field. We believe sport significantly enhances student employability, with BUCS providing a great platform for Amazon to engage with some of the most talented student leaders across the UK.”
