Interns and Apprenticeships
4th May 2016
At Pearl Linguistics, we love our interns and consider them a vital and important part of our team.
We have had a number of incredibly talented, dedicated and hardworking interns work with us over the years eager to gain new skills and experiences, so Pearl Linguistics is naturally the best place for them to garner those abilities and develop those attributes.
We make our internship experience fun and exciting for our interns, embracing them fully to Pearl Linguistics company culture. The tasks and responsibilities are varied and diverse and allow the intern to work in various different departments, giving them the opportunity to meet new people, developing both their confidence and communication skills, which are essential in today’s growing and dynamic society.
We have had inspiring success stories with our interns with some even going on to become fully-fledged members of the Pearl team, either becoming Booking Coordinators or Recruitment Consultants.
One of our most positive stories is our latest Apprenticeship student, 18 year old Ona from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, who is currently working as a Booking Coordinator at Pearl Linguistics. Ona is currently studying Business Administration level 2 at training provider First Rung Ltd and once completed, will be joining the Pearl team on a full time basis.
Ona has enjoyed her time at Pearl and appreciates the opportunities that have been given to her, ‘’Pearl has welcomed with me within their company with open arms and have treated me as one of their employees'' . And it's not just the company but the people Ona has grown to love ''The colleagues at Pearl are so friendly and they create a family atmosphere here at the work place. My goals are being achieved slowly through this apprenticeship as Pearl is my first step into my new life.’’
Adam, 18, from North London, and also studying at First Rung Ltd has been an intern at Pearl for 7 months now and is still enjoying the challenges and experience he is gaining in his placement. ‘’Pearl is one of the best companies that I have worked for. All of the members of staff here are really friendly and are more than happy to help if anyone is in need of assistance.’’
And during his 7 months at Pearl Linguistics Adam has gained valuable skills and experience which has improved his confidence and work ethic. ‘’During my time working for Pearl I have been able to grow and improve both my personal skills and the vital skills needed to work in a business environment.’’
Internships and Apprenticeship are great platforms for young people and give them fantastic experience in the working world. Hands-on training gives students a real chance to put their new skills into practice and helps them gain more confidence in a working environment.
Pearl Linguistics is committed to giving opportunities and help grow and develop the next generation into the workplace.
