Exco InTouch, which provides digital patient engagement and data capture solutions for clinical research and healthcare providers, is on the hunt for the next generation of industry superstars.

The company, which is based at Wheatcroft Business Park in Nottingham, is heading to several careers fairs across the East Midlands in search of four hard-working, organised undergraduates to join the company for one year on a full-salary placement in both its software development and operations divisions.

John Brown, resourcing manager at Exco InTouch, said: “We’ll be on the look-out for bright individuals who are interested in technology and want to help bring life-changing medications to the patients who need them. We’ve seen time and time again that those who go back to university fly through their final year using the skills they’ve learned with us”.

Alex Davies, who is studying BA Geography at the University of Nottingham, is currently working in Exco InTouch’s project management team as part of his placement.

He said: “Working at Exco InTouch has taught me that you can’t approach any job from a one-sided standpoint. I’ve been helped so much by everyone here and I’ve learned a lot – but I like to think that I’ve given something back, too. Exco InTouch are committed to helping young people grow into their careers”.

Meanwhile, Andy Lynk, who studies BSc Computer Science and Maths at Loughborough University, said: “Coming to Exco InTouch was a great choice for me. I’ve learned so much on the technical side of the business already and I’ve taken a big step forward from my first two years at university. The environment is great to work in, and I’d urge everyone interested in tech and/or pharma to consider Exco”.

Exco InTouch is set for further growth this year following its acquisition by ERT, a global data and technology company that minimises risk and uncertainty in clinical trials.
