Job Title: Chief Executive Officer
Internship Scheme used: A2I Employer subsidies (A2I) – Employment Services – University of Exeter
We recruited an intern to work as a Trainee Mentor and Coordinator who worked exceptionally well as part of our small team.
We were all very happy with the calibre of the student. She worked hard to meet all the objectives we set and played a lead role in developing an ex-offenders women’s group which was attended by over 10 women.
The University of Exeter student proved an enormous benefit to our charity and she contributed greatly to the development of our women’s support group. Without hesitation we would have her again placed with us. She was a great credit to the university.
We found the internship experience very positive and the contribution our intern made in our organisation was outstanding.
