NEWSJCC Launches Internship Scheme

The JCC, in partnership with CLS’s Alumni Engagement Team, is piloting an internship scheme, aimed at providing work experience opportunities for younger alumni. More than ten Old Citizens have already signed up for the pilot offering work shadowing in sectors as diverse as IT, private equity and the armed forces, either in person or virtually. OC Paul Marmor (Class of 1983), who is heading up the scheme for the JCC said: ‘The aim of providing this sort of work experience is to allow younger alumni to gain insights into the professions, industry and the workplace in general, to enhance their employability and better consider life and career choices. ‘The host will provide experience which could include giving the alumnus opportunities to attend meetings as an observer, participate in client-facing activities, and experience a range of activities appropriate to the particular workplace (whether it be attending on surveys, Court hearings, audits, dress rehearsals, project-management).’ Internships can last for a few days to a week, or several weeks, or for as long as a host is prepared to offer.
