  4. Develop your transferable skills: being part of the BEES team will enhance your team-working, communication skills, initiative… all skills employers seek!
  5. A good feeling from having a positive impact: BEES is improving local business practice, giving Southampton students sustainability training and experience, and working to put ethical and environmental considerations at the heart of Southampton.
