With the new Alcumus Head Office being close to the USW Exchange, we are in an ideal location to work together and support each other going forward.


Friday 24 February saw Alcumus, a provider of technology-enabled business assurance and compliance risk management solutions, open their new Cardiff head office in the presence of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.


As part of the day and in recognition of the strong and enduring connection Alcumus has with the University of South Wales, senior staff and alumni were presented to His Royal Highness as part of official proceedings.


Head of Alumni Relations and Development, Rachael Barker comments: "We're delighted to be part of Alcumus' special day, especially given that the company has at its core 12% of its workforce holding a qualification from our institution. We're particularly pleased to continue to be at the heart of the region's economic development, and with so much USW talent helping drive this, this is a particularly proud moment."


Alcumus has partnered with the University on a number of initiatives, including our new initiative to connect industry with academia and student talent - USW Exchange.  USW Exchange has been designed to facilitate student-industry collaboration through providing an inspirational setting to host businesses who wish to hold workshops, business activities and networking events. USW Exchange opens officially in June.


Graduate (BA (Hons) Public Administration, 1991) and Alcumus CEO, Martin Smith commented: “With the new Alcumus Head Office being close to the USW Exchange, we are in an ideal location to work together and support each other going forward”.
