Set for Success: Our Internship Scheme
Since 2018 we have been welcoming Interns from universities across the UK to undertake paid employment in our company, contribute to our growth, and to develop the vital skills they need to succeed in the workplace.
In 2018 we hired Shahir, a final year Economics and Accounting undergraduate from the University of Leicester to take on the role of Digital Marketing Assistant. Following a successful application process and interview, Shahir was selected from amongst his fellow students and went on to excel in his role, contributing to our long-term marketing strategies. Shahir’s contributions during his internship were celebrated by the University of Leicester and Shahir himself offered the following reflections on experiences gained:
Alongside developing technical and interpersonal skills, Shahir became a fully-fledged member of our team:
…my internship at WRG has been a very immersive experience, where I was continually learning many valuable skills through vast exposure to many areas of Digital Marketing.”
In 2019 we welcomed Viola into our team as Graphic Design Assistant, a role which enabled her to apply her exceptional graphic design and branding knowledge alongside completing her degree in Digital Media at the University of Stirling.
Viola developed invaluable skills that she will take forward in her future career:
Viola has gone on to achieve a first-class degree and we are delighted that Viola will continue to work with us part-time in the future.
We continue to offer these opportunities, with the latest additions to our team undertaking a comprehensive PR activity to implement media, industry, and public engagement for an EU-funded research project. Two recent graduates, Lewis and Megan, are working collaboratively on this exciting new project, which brings together our company’s expertise in securing research funding and outreach and dissemination.
