SES Intern of the Year Award 2011
For many years Student Employment Services (SES) has recruited and employed thousands of interns on behalf of businesses across the UK. The large amount of high quality interns meant that SES certainly faced a challenge when choosing the ‘SES intern of the year’. However after much deliberation, the SES judges awarded Rebecca Smith, who is placed at Yorkshire Bank the coveted prize.
Rebecca, who was recruited and employed by SES on behalf of Yorkshire Bank, has made a real impact during her internship. She demonstrated a varied skillset, a can-do attitude, and an enthusiastic approach to new challenges.
Steven Glass, Head of Marketing at Yorkshire Bank commented ‘Rebecca has made a real difference in her time with us, combining an infectious energy with a desire to learn and contribute to the team’.
After a successful 12 month industrial placement, Rebecca will now work for Yorkshire Bank on a part-time basis as she returns to university to finish her studies.
‘I was so happy to get offered another job with Yorkshire Bank, it’s a great company and the best thing about working for them is the opportunities that they provide employees. Winning the SES Intern of the Year Award was definitely shocking but fantastic’ states Rebecca.
Rebecca’s experience demonstrates how both students/graduates and employers can benefit from hiring interns. ‘Rebecca is a credit to the internship programme and has definitely left us with the appetite to take on more high calibre students with SES’, states Lucy Marshall, Insight & CRM Manager at the bank.
