The partnership recognises the organisations’ shared interest in and commitment to the development of educational needs.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, and Jonathan Watts-Lay, Director of WEALTH at work, signed a memorandum of agreement to work together on a number of initiatives.

WEALTH at work will support the employability agenda for students of the University of Lincoln, and the partners are also committed to developing the WEALTH at work retirement survey into a major annual work on the state of the UK market.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “We have worked with WEALTH at work for many years and as a company, they share our vision of strong ties between the university and business sectors.

“In addition to the upcoming initiatives that will benefit our students, we are also looking forward to further developing the WEALTH at work annual retirement survey by providing academic insight, expertise and knowledge to aid the study.”

Jonathan Watts-Lay, Director for WEALTH at work, said: “I am extremely excited to be working with the University of Lincoln on these initiatives. It is a very progressive university, which shares our views on the important link between university education and the world of work.

“We have provided our education and advice services to employees of the University of Lincoln for quite a while and when they approached me to broaden our relationship, I could immediately see the benefits for all involved.”
