Exol forms partnership with Aston University

Exol Lubricants is partnering with Aston University on its career and placements programme, offering students insight into the independent automotive aftermarket and lubricants sector.

The collaboration will offer the company the opportunity to build solid relationships with future industry professionals while also promoting the Exol brand, work ethic and principles.

For example, Exol is a recognised user of the waterways, leading the oil and lubricants market by investing in the environmentally-friendly alternative to transport large loads. This is part of the company’s larger strategy to reduce its carbon footprint: something it is keen to promote to students.

Aston University has acquired an excellent reputation among top employers, seeking out established businesses that will allow students to develop and progress as individuals.

The institution was recently ranked 2nd in the UK for teaching quality and aspires to be the country’s leading university for industry and the professions. Aston places a strong emphasis on the value of work experience and is aiming to have 100 per cent of undergraduates enrolled on work placements by 2020.

Steve Dunn, Exol Lubricant’s Sales Director, said: “We’re confident that these placements will enable students to experience first-hand everyday activities in the oil & lubricants sector, equipping them with the skills to tackle any potential hurdles head on when they graduate. We will work closely alongside Aston University to support students throughout their placements and provide them with a comprehensive look into the world of business, helping them to fully prepare for the future.”
