Three undergraduate students from the School of Management and Languages have won Saltire Foundation Internships for 2010. Year 3 Business Management students John Charalambous, Rachel Lippett, and Natasha Walls will be spending their summer working in some of the world's most successful multinational companies.
John will be based in North Carolina in the USA with Quintiles, a global pioneer in pharmaceutical services which delivers new drugs and cures for the world's most challenging diseases. Rachel will be based in Tokyo, Japan with DHL Supply Chain which design and implement customised supply chain and corporate information solutions. Natasha will be based in Sydney, Australia with Telstra, Australia's leading telecommunications and information services company.
The Saltire Foundation is an independent charitable organisation providing opportunities through experience, learning and business networking to help create Scotland's next generation of business leaders. The Undergraduate Internship Programme offers students the chance to experience the working environment of global multinational companies for eight weeks.
By broadening horizons and opening doors, the Programme aim is to encourage the students to develop their confidence, skills and capacity to succeed with a positive, can-do attitude and an enterprising outlook. The scheme is open to those in their penultimate year of study at a Scottish University. Internships include not only the opportunity to work in a global multination company but also flights, accommodation and living expenses.
All the Saltire interns including John, Rachel and Natasha will be 'blogging' over the course of their internships. You can follow their progress on their Saltire Foundation blogs.
