How do I enter?

There are 10 team spaces available and each team requires 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 submit the following details to employers.careers@plymouth.ac.uk by Wednesday 12th October 2016

  • 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!) 

Team registration opens on Monday 26th September 2016.

How can I prepare?

You can come along to our FLUX workshop on Monday 24th October 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, please make sure the rest of your team is coming and we'll see you there. 

All team members should also be attending the briefing on Tuesday 25th October 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. 

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 Andrea to ask any questions on employers.careers@plymouth.ac.uk or 01752 587729.
