Last month marked the successful completion of our first Internship program, delivered in partnership with 10,000 Black Interns.
We followed up with a selection of the interns, trainers, and our HR Business Partner Maddy Wright to find out how they found the initiative.
‘I am delighted to have been part of our first Kubrick internship programme which exceeded all my expectations. This was a very impressive group, hard-working, professional and willing to try innovative approaches to problem solving – which kept me on my toes for the duration of the program. To cap it all, they helped to deliver valuable solutions to improve our training process, as well as being great fun to work with. I'm incredibly proud of Kubrick for setting up this initiative, and I'm confident that we have positive impact on their future careers!” Jason Thompson, Principal Consultant.
“Two weeks ago we sadly said goodbye to the 10 incredible interns who had spent the last 6 weeks with us. During their time they led projects, learned new skills and took part in a number of sessions to support both their personal and professional development. On their final day they presented back to various stakeholders in HQ showcasing the great things they achieved during their projects. We wish them all the best as they begin their careers, and hopefully they may come back to join us again in future” Maddy Wright, HR Business Partner.
“The pioneer Kubrick internship program was a resounding success, a testament to our meticulously designed framework that empowers and cultivates future leaders who exceed expectations and drive excellence every step of the way" Chris Onowu, Head of Data Product Training.
"What a privilege to be part of this group's development during their 6 week internship at Kubrick. This group achieved over and above what we asked of them, they are true trailblazers!" Willem Botha, Principal Consultant.
During the interns time with us they worked collaboratively on various projects which was presented back to key stakeholders in their final week with us. We also ran some sessions on important skills for work to support their personal and professional development.
“My experience at Kubrick was welcoming and insightful. It was my first real experience in the world of Data and I can't wait to apply what I learnt from my training and conversations with people throughout the company to my university studies, projects and beyond” Lydia Kolesho, Intern.
“My experience at Kubrick has been nothing short of transformative, I have come out of the internship equipped with a multitude of new skills both technical and interpersonal, and a supportive network!” Jesimiel Akinsuyi, Intern.
“My experience at Kubrick has been enriching to say the least. I've gained invaluable lessons, both professionally and personally, which will undoubtedly shape my future career” Genette Belay, Intern.
We are excited to be a part of our interns career journey and look forward to seeing the bright future they have ahead of them.
