By 27th April 2017 No Comments

Environmental Monitoring Systems (EMS) are happy to welcome Becca Mews to the team as part of a 9 month Marketing Enhanced Mentored Internship (EMI) scheme, in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University.

The EMI scheme is designed specifically to connect academia to the business world. Nigel Jones, Principal lecturer in a marketing sub group at Sheffield Hallam University, is providing the mentor support for Becca. Nigel commented:


“The Enhanced Mentor Scheme is a wonderful opportunity for business and academia to merge whilst allowing a graduate real work experience – the business receives a solution, the Intern gets valuable work experience and the University gets to engage proactively with industry, all of which can be taken back into the classroom to provide real life examples.”


Sarah Durkin is the ‘Knowledge Transfer Partnership’ Manager at Sheffield Hallam University. Sarah believes that this internship scheme highlights a great example of knowledge exchange, she says:


“The Internship with EMS is an excellent example of Knowledge Exchange working at its best. The programme provides the capacity and enthusiasm to learn and share knowledge through a recent graduate, balanced with experienced and focused support from the academic team; enabling the University to apply its research knowledge in practice alongside key industry innovators.”


The main focus of this internship is to drive forward EMS’s Environmental Data Acquisition System (eDAS®) offering. eDAS® is a flexible solution designed to centralise environmental performance data for effective management, decision support and control.

Becca is a recent graduate from Sheffield Hallam University and has a BA in Marketing, Communications and Advertising. Her marketing knowledge, combined with the support from the University, will be invaluable to the business development team and the success of this product.

Good luck Becca!
