We offer graduate Internships lasting three months, although this may be extended by mutual agreement. Internships are open to any graduate.
There is some controversy over whether interns should be paid. Our view is that these are training posts and NOT jobs and will not involve necessary day-to-day operational work or replace any work done by permanent, temporary or agency staff and if ever interns were asked to perform necessary operational roles they would be paid accordingly.
These training positions are designed to help graduates overcome the problem of not having sufficient work experience on their CV to get a job.
Interns will work on a variety of projects which they will choose from a range of options. Most will potentially be of some benefit to our business. Training will include shadowing managers to gain experience of sales, client service and negotiation. Specific training in interview skills and assistance with CV writing will be provided.
Interns will be paid expenses to cover the cost of lunch and local transport.
Please note that the internship will be at our Holsworthy, Devon administration centre. Holsworthy is a small market town and if you do not live within commuting distance you would need to find and pay for your accommodation. There are few if any part-time jobs locally to subsidise your living costs. For this reason our Internships really are only suitable for those who live nearby or have friends or relatives in the area with whom they can stay.
Where an applicant has a part-time job it may be possible to arrange flexible hours.
While we do employ graduates this Internship is not primarily intended to be a route to a job with this company, though obviously if a suitable job arises an Intern who has impressed us would be in a good position.
