What employers think of the scheme
Pulse Roll Label Products Ltd
"Great experience for us. The standard of project work and level of achievement was good. Great to have a dedicated project intern on board, with a 'can do' attitude and a desire to learn and put current international studies to good use."
"The Intern attended our intern workshop with UK-based students and was able to deliver practical suggestions as part of the team. The team have translated our new online course into German ready for international expansion. We are delighted that we were able to offer this internship to add an international perspective on our marketing offer. We would thoroughly recommend the scheme."
"The intern completed a very valuable ongoing marketing plan with contacts for new business, press and bloggers. She translated a marketing leaflet and video. A prospective order of €2,500+ is being negotiated as a result of her work. She was professionally presented, she communicated very clearly and had good workplace initiatives and instincts, as well as the ability to work independently. She often exceeded my expectations and her work was of a higher standard than many people I deal with on a daily basis."
"The International Talent Internship Scheme is a wonderful example of how excellent students, with a variety of skills can assist small businesses to deliver against targets. The intern has provided our company with insight to specific events, agencies and key opportunities that we can pursue. He was proactive to contact and gain knowledge ahead of the start date to ensure he was effective in carrying out key tasks.
"The internship team is responsive, supportive, professional and take a proactive approach to simplify the process. The programme has provided us with an opportunity to focus specifically on our target market due to the intern having knowledge of the local market and being fluent in the local language."
