We recruited a graduate to work as Economic Development Project Assistant in the Business Innovation Team within the Economy, Enterprise and Skills Service. The intern provided secretariat and administrative support to 2 ERDF funded Programmes.
Our Intern’s hard work enabled both Programmes to meet the funders requirements for compliance. In order to do this, she organised and recorded steering group and management board meetings, checked output claims and instigated robust document retention plans.
We enjoyed a positive intern experience and found that the candidate was fully able to understand the complexities of providing Project Management support within the content of European Funded Programmes. Our graduate was offered another role in Devon County council when her contract had finished. She made a very brilliant contribution to our company and worked well within our dynamic team.
