Description

Welcome to the University of Plymouth's Faculty of Business FLUX Competition!

Team registration opens on Monday 18th September 2017!

Is this competition for me?

This exciting competition is for any student with an interest in the business sector, who wants to put a fantastic event on their CV to evidence a multitude of attributes including:

  • commercial awareness
  • team work
  • working under pressure
  • leadership
  • project management
  • confident presentation skills
  • ideas generation
  • networking & a professional manner
  • communication skills.... we could go on and on!

The winning from each stream (3 streams) will go on to represent their faculty at the University of Plymouth FLUX finals on Wednesday 14th March 2018!

There is also a £300 cash prize to celebrate the achievements of the winning team, with a £120 prize for the second place team and a £40 prize for the overall best presenter from each stream.

This event will provide great business and employability skills development, so if you want to boost your CV and have the chance to meet graduate recruiters and make an impression, then this is the event for you!

How do I enter?

There are 15 team spaces available and each team requires a maximum 6 members. You can enter as a full team of 6, with 2-5 as part of a team, or individually and we will match you to others looking to make up a full team.

To enter you need to email us the following details by Wednesday 31st January 2018!

  • Team Name
  • Names, courses, stages and email addresses of all team members
  • Team Captain
  • Your team photo (as this is a business challenge these would typically be in business wear and in a professional setting. It's best to make an impact from the start!)

Where possible, you will need to be available for the following:

FLUX preparation workshop on Monday 12th January 2018 at 5pm, location TBC

Here you'll practise key skills such as how to network, communicate professionally, how to pitch an idea and present confidently. No need to sign up, and your whole team does not need to attend if they cannot make it.

FLUX Scenario Briefing by the competition sponsor, Tuesday 13th January 2018 at 5:30pm, location TBC

Here we will run through the programme for the next day and you will be given the top-secret scenario for the first time, delivered by representatives from the organisation supporting the event.



FLUX is a verifiable activity which will count towards the Plymouth Award (8 hours in the Working Life category) and your HEAR.

Please email or phone Rhys or Sarah to ask any questions on employers.careers@plymouth.ac.uk or 01752 587729.

You can also drop in to the Careers & Employability Hub in RLB to chat with someone from our team and find out more information on what’s on and how we can help you prepare.
