"York Community Consulting has been brilliant! We have worked with them twice now, and throughout both research projects they have shown great quality and professionalism. All work has been thorough, well-presented and detailed. Each and every member shows such skill, talent and ambition, and we are sure will have excellent future careers."
"YCC worked diligently to produce a very useful report for the charity that will, when the current health emergency situation abates, be used to support our work into the future. I was impressed with their level of contact and with the professionalism with which the report was both presented and completed."
"We hired YCC to advise us on our social media, website, and post-offer student engagement strategies and were amazed with the quality of their work. Their final presentation was highly professional and of an equal standard to what I would expect consultants employed by large firms to deliver. YCC’s recommendations were backed up with detailed evidence and their output has directly affected recent decisions made by our management team. We have since focussed on making our website more visual and easier for prospective students to use, invested in implementing recommendations on how we manage our social media platforms, and totally overhauled the way we run our post offer open days. YCC did an excellent job of collecting and analysing data from the student demographic and provided us with excellent value - I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend York Community Consulting to other organisation"
"Great experience, very committed and well organised team"
We run our projects during the University of York's academic term dates (terms 1, 2 and 3). Each of our projects lasts one academic term. During this time we will have regular team, external mentor and client meetings. Below is a guide timeline.
