The Sheffield China gateway scheme

The Sheffield China Gateway Scheme is the upgraded version of the GREAT Ambassadors (China) Scheme that was initiated by UK Trade & Investment and piloted at the University of Sheffield. The aim is to link businesses with the growing pool of Chinese speaking talents at UK universities, who can benefit your business internationally.

Employing a Chinese speaking student or graduate from the University of Sheffield can help your business to:

  • Build Guanxi (personal relationships) and understand Chinese business networks
  • Test a project for the Chinese market
  • Widen your understanding of Chinese culture and communicate more effectively

If you have a vacancy in mind, you can submit the details via the university's online system, Career Connect. Once submitted, your entry will be checked before being made live to students and/or graduates, as appropriate.
