‘I don’t think you have to be an amazing person to be a great business’
Business Management Internships, a platform where graduates are offered a job to work with companies in the UK, is opening a second branch in Cardiff, Wales.
The company has been running since March and has over 50 apprentices.
“This is an exciting time for our apprentices,” said Natalie, an intern from Cardiff.
“I’m looking forward to learning how to make a better business.”
We are all working to achieve the same goal of building the most successful business in the world.
“There is no better time to learn how to be the best person at any job than right now.”
A job with Plunet, the company behind the app, is a chance to work alongside top talent from around the world, and to learn from a number of industry leaders, as well as receiving up to £5,000 in mentoring money from the company.
The internships are not paid, but the money helps the apprentices to continue their studies.
“My main aim is to develop a career and make the most of my experience, but I’m also looking forward working with some of the most talented people around,” Natalie said.
“If it means I get to know some of my peers in the industry I can make a huge difference.”
The company, which is a joint venture between the University of the Arts and the University College Cardiff, has a number apprentices who are looking to work in business and marketing.
“When we were first setting up our internship programme we had a lot of great candidates but they all turned out to be students, so we decided to give them the opportunity to work at a university in Wales, where we know a lot about their work,” said Mark.
“So far the students have been great and are doing an amazing job, but we still need more people to join the team.”
Mark, who is from Wales and has spent most of his career working in the City, has spent the past few years travelling across the country, helping young people find jobs and working in a variety of fields.
“You don’t have to have any skills or be an expert to be successful in a business,” he said.
