Latest Virtual Internship offering from the Plymouth Business School for PMG members
Hi there at PMG
I wanted to share news of our latest Virtual Internship offering before the funding gets allocated.
Following two successful rounds of Virtual Internships, we’ve secured additional funding through Plymouth Business School and are about to go live with another call for projects.
Our Virtual Internship scheme sees current students and recent graduates from Plymouth Business School working on short term projects to benefit local businesses and organisations, whilst improving their own employability. Interns working on projects are paid at a standard rate of £13/hour, up to a maximum of 38 hours per project (£494), which is funded by Plymouth Business School and supported by iMayflower. Example projects include:
- Business Development Intern: To conduct market research to identify key prospects within a defined market
- Communications Intern: To assess existing and draft new promotional content
- Customer Service Intern: To critically evaluate current customer service delivery
- Evaluation Intern: To conduct an impact study assessing the effect of organisational activity
- Events Intern: To support with planning and management of a specific event, or work with you to develop plans for COVID era events
- Fundraising Intern: To identify funding sources, draft action plan for achieving funding goals, or focus on bid writing
- HR Intern: To conduct an assessment of Corporate Social Responsibility opportunities, and devise an appropriate plan of activity
- Learning & Development Intern: To create a basic system for monitoring mandatory compliance training
- Marketing Intern: To conduct a strategic review or existing marketing activity suggesting new opportunities
- Operations Intern: To identify improvements in supply chain
- Research Intern: To devise and conduct data collecting projects of either secondary or primary sources
- Social Media Intern: To analyse social media opportunities and create content
- Sustainability Intern: To conduct an audit/plan of sustainability activity
We will be accepting project proposals on the attached form from Monday 23rd August and are able to support a maximum of 40 individual projects. Funding will be awarded on a first come, first served basis and will be withdrawn when the maximum allocation has been reached.
Sorry if I’ve jumped the gun on this, but wanted to ensure PMG were amongst the first to hear of the offer. Obviously, this opportunity is open to all your members.
