Paxton Welcomes Degree Students to Paxton Scholarship Open Day

Brighton,  UK – 18th November 2019

Brighton technology company Paxton opened its doors to over 120 degree students keen to find out more about the unique opportunities offered through its scholarship programme.

 

Students from the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex studying engineering, product design, maths, computing and physics were invited to the Paxton Scholarship Open Day ahead of the application process opening.

 

They were given a tour Paxton’s state-of-the-art technology centre, shown its diverse range of access control products, heard from CEO Adam Stroud and had the opportunity to talk to its four current scholars, who have just started their final year at university following a paid work placement in the summer.
Visitors also met scholars from previous years who have since taken up permanent positions within the company.

 

Launched in 2017, the scholarship programme is a direct partnership with both universities. Highly sought-after, it offers four scholars £10,000 towards their final year university fees and a three-month paid work placement where they will take part in technology research projects that will form the final year project of their degree. They are given ongoing support and use of Paxton’s cutting-edge facilities during this time.

 

CEO, Adam Stroud, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome so many potential candidates to this year’s open day. We hugely value the relationship we have with both universities – not only does it enable us to really support and invest in our local community, it also introduces us to so many talented people. The global market for our security products is growing rapidly and we need a constant influx of smart and motivated team members.

 

“The first group of scholars who joined us in 2017 made huge contributions to the projects they worked on and we’re thrilled they are all continuing their career with us, having now left university. Our current intake also impressed us during their placements, and we’re pleased to be able to support them in their final year. Having such bright minds on board is invaluable to the continued development of our company.”

 

One of the visiting students, Emmanuel Oyemade, studying Product Design, at the University of Sussex, said: “Coming into a company like this is quite a unique opportunity and it is appreciated. It was great to hear the programme is inclusive of the STEM curriculum. It’s great that Paxton are looking for product designers, engineers, computer science experts – it really is across the board.”

 

Current scholar, Annabel Spain, studying Digital Media, at the University of Sussex, said: “The scholarship opportunity is priceless. There is a positive work environment at Paxton and it has definitely opened my eyes to different career paths that I didn’t know existed. I’m doing my final year project on coding for hardware because of my work here and I’m really grateful for the support I’m getting.”

 

Sam Innes, who studied Computer Science at the University of Brighton, was among the first group of scholars and is now working in Paxton’s mobile apps team. He said: “When I attended the open day, there was so much enthusiasm among the teams for the products they were working on, which is what encouraged me to apply. One of the biggest things here is collaboration – you get a lot of help. I spent a lot of time in the Research team and then got to branch out in other areas. It’s a great place to learn.”

 

Those who attended the open day are invited to apply for a scholarship place, a shortlist will be invited to attend an assessment day, after which the successful candidates will be announced.

Paxton Supports DIY SOS: The Big Build

Brighton, UK – 14th November 2019

Paxton has supported DIY SOS: The Big Build BBC Children in Need Special with a major project to help homeless young people.

 

BBC One’s popular renovation show was in Blackburn in September to convert an old church hall into much-needed emergency accommodation for the charity, Nightsafe.

 

Paxton, which designs and manufactures security systems, donated a range of products from its Net2 access control system, including readers, wireless electronic door handles and keyfobs, which were installed by Black Box Fire & Security Systems.

 

The ambitious nine-day build saw hundreds of volunteers and tradespeople transform the interior of the hall into a purpose-built centre, specifically for those aged 16 to 18.

 

Gareth O’Hara, Chief Sales Officer, said: “It was an honour to be involved with DIY SOS: The Big Build for BBC Children in Need. Nightsafe do amazing work for vulnerable young people in the community, so when Black Box asked if we’d be able to donate access control products to keep its new accommodation, residents and staff safe and secure, we were happy to be able to help.”

David Barnes, Managing Director of Black Box Security, said: “We were thrilled to be involved in such a worthwhile cause which will deliver real help to those in need locally. Our team installed the intruder alarm, door access, video intercom, CCTV and fire alarm systems to ensure that the build is safe and protected for all who use it. We knew Paxton would provide the most suitable access control kit and we’re really grateful to them for donating it.”

Nightsafe is a small Blackburn-based charity supporting homeless people aged 16-24 years www.blackburn-nightsafe.org.uk

 

DIY SOS: The Big Build is a primetime BBC One TV series presented by Nick Knowles. The award-winning series attracts millions of viewers and is now celebrating 20 years of inspiring builds.

 

The special episode aired during BBC’s Children in Need week.
