Speaking about her time, a current intern said: "Working at EMSOU is really interesting. It's very different to other jobs because you do get to work on things and hear about things that a lot of people don't.
"Everyone is friendly and welcoming, supportive and helpful, but at the same time they do give you lots of independence. You are trusted to work on projects and come up with your own ideas.
"Time is also made for personal development which I think is really important. I've had access to some really interesting internal events to learn more about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
"I'd not heard of the organisation before I applied for my internship, but knowing what I do now I'd really encourage people to apply. I've gained a real insight into the world of work, it's a nice change to the university setting, and really good to be able to put the theories and teachings from lectures into practise."
