Our Internship Scheme: New Vacancy!

Written by Mark, June 2021

History

Since 2018 we have been welcoming undergraduate Interns from universities to undertake paid employment in our company, contribute to our growth, and to develop the vital skills they need to succeed in the workplace.

Viola MadauFor example, In 2019 we welcomed Viola into our team as Graphic Design & Branding 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:

“This placement gave me the opportunity to develop both hard and soft skills. Not only was I able to learn new things within my field and do it in a comfortable working environment, but I improved my remote working skills as well. At the beginning of my placement I did not know yet how important working remotely would then become for my industry.”

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 via her own company.
