Head of Careers and Employability, Dr Paul Redmond, will visit India this month to discuss how students and graduates can benefit from a new internship scheme.
Graduates and post-graduates from India, the UK, and other overseas countries, who have studied at the University, can take part in a new £1.4 million graduate internship programme aimed at developing the skills required to work in multinational organisations.
Dr Paul Redmond, Director of the University’s Careers and Employability Service, will be in India this month to talk to student applicants about the new programme and the employability skills required for jobs in the UK. Dr Redmond will attend events in Bangalore, Mumbai and Chennai. University representatives will also be present at an event in Delhi, where more information will be given on studying and living in Liverpool.
The ‘Graduate to Merseyside’ scheme provides internship opportunities in UK businesses and organisations for approximately six months and will benefit graduates currently living in Merseyside as well as those returning to the region. International students can also take advantage of a number of University careers programmes whilst they study. These include a programme of seminars on searching for job opportunities in the UK and overseas, and access to ‘GoingGlobal’, a resource that allows students to get advice on working in different countries.
Dr Redmond said: “The current economic and political environment has presented students with new challenges in pursuing careers in the UK after graduation. Our team of careers advisors at Liverpool is working on new initiatives to respond to these challenges and give students the support that they need. The new internship programme provides a fantastic opportunity for students to gain invaluable paid work experience in UK companies. It also demonstrates to employers that Liverpool has highly-skilled graduates that can further enhance their business performance.”
Liverpool graduate, Aditya Khandkar, from Nagpur, India, took part in the internship programme as a website developer and designer at a UK aquatic supply company. After completing his internship he was successful in securing a full time job with the company.
