Cowes Software Company Aims to Boost Graduate Roles on the Island

Staff from Yokogawa Marex attended the recent Solent University, Southampton Work, World, and Future Ready Careers Fair to talk all things software with students who are looking to pursue a career in software development.

Yokogawa Marex took the opportunity to interact and engage with students, showcasing what the company has to offer as well as answer any questions from aspiring software developers, testers, and support engineers. Daniel was able to share with students his experience, having recently graduated Solent University Digital Solutions (Software Engineer Pathway) Degree Apprenticeship, and is now a full-time software developer at Yokogawa Marex.

Meredith Smith, Deputy Head Student Experience (Careers) at Solent University, Southampton says, “Having organisations like Yokogawa Marex attending our recruitment events gives our students the opportunity to network with future employers face-to-face and find out what skills, attributes and mind-sets they are looking for in future employees.”

Wayne Matthews, Divisional Director at Yokogawa Marex adds: “We see the value and importance in providing opportunities for the next generation of software developers, testers, and support engineers through work experience, degree apprenticeships and graduate schemes.”

“Being a global company enables us to provide young talent with first-class experience developing, testing and supporting software solutions and working with major energy companies around the world, boosting the Island’s economy.”
