New Internship Opportunity Welcomes Students from London & Kent
By HIBA KHAN
We are committed to our Corporate Social Responsibility and our ongoing efforts with Medway Youth Trust, Corporate Charity Golf events, Graduate Recruitment & Assessment Days and free employability workshops are a testament to our dedication toward creating a prosperous and successful community.
We are especially invested in giving students the opportunity to develop a strong network, increase their marketability and gain valuable experience and exposure. Not only does this help them hit the ground running when it comes to seeking a career post-graduation, it also boosts their confidence by having worked in a professional office environment.
With this aim in mind, in January 2015, we launched a Partnership Project aimed at 16-25 year old students.
“Being involved with the community especially for a cause that we believe very strongly in, is extremely satisfying. We will continue working with the education authorities and local charities to build upon this years success” Sarah Landry, Managing Director
Within 3 months of launching, we accepted 6 six students from Kent and 6 from London who completed the 12 week course with us. They gained valuable business exposure within their chosen industry sector, built their own network of contacts and developed a competitive advantage over others in the market place when it came to employability skills.
Next year, we are going international! We are currently finalizing an Erasmus agreement with various European universities that will enable international students to join us in the UK under an Erasmus+ Internship program.
Our aim is to build a solid, future alumni by investing in today’s youth, supporting their career aspirations whilst studying, and offering them work placements if appropriate.
