Intern of the Year

We are delighted to announce that Lauren won the University of Leicester’s ‘Intern of the Year’ award earlier this month. Lauren joined us on an internship funded by the university and Santander in January 2016 and was offered a full time position in April. The University of Leicester Student Awards was held at Athena, included a three course meal and covered various contributions made by a wide range of students across different aspects of the university.

Lauren was one of six shortlisted nominees and was well-deserving of winning the award.
