15 students and recent graduates have joined outsourced waste management and recycling services provider, Reconomy, for its third annual summer internship programme, with several choosing to stay on in full-time positions.
Agatha Agyapong, Fiona Macintosh, Jordan Blair and Aminoor Islam all joined at the start of the summer, having successful completed an assessment day held at Reconomy’s Telford HQ.
Having joined as business interns, each recruit moved into a specific area of the business based on their skillset to get a feel for full-time employment, learn business processes and experience Reconomy as a place to work.
Through hard work and commitment to their jobs, Agatha, Fiona, Jordan and Aminoor all expressed an interest in staying with Reconomy to further build their careers; an opportunity that the company was delighted to extend to them. The remaining interns have now all returned to full-time education.
Reconomy internships cover the summer period and are open to school leavers, current college or university students, as well as recent graduates. Opportunities are varied and incorporate a range of business functions and departments such as IT, Finance, Customer Services and Operations
They are designed to not only give participants real, paid work experience, they also provide a significant benefit to the company during the holiday season.
Here’s what Fiona had to say about her time over the summer "I had a great couple of months interning at Reconomy where I was given great training and lots of responsibility very quickly. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming to me so I could settle in really quickly."
Nicole, Reconomy's Talent Acquisition Lead, said "Every year I’m impressed with the calibre of applicants who join the internship programme and every year I’m so pleased to be able to offer further opportunities to those that want to stay. Thank you all for everything you’ve done for us this summer and I know you’ll be successful in whatever you go on to do and who knows our paths may cross again!"
