Rosie Pearce describes her experience as an intern:
I interned for one day a week at the Franco-British Council during June and July 2013. I was lucky enough to be working with the Council as it celebrated its 40th anniversary, which meant that I was able to assist at the grand reception event at the Foreign Office, which was a fantastic experience. Working in a small, focused team at the FBC office enabled me to take on considerable responsibilities such as liaising with members, taking minutes, updating the website and undertaking research for future events. Every day was different and as well as gaining essential professional skills (in both English and French!) I gained a unique insight into the daily running of an international organisation.
Hannah Meltzer writes of her experience as follows:
I interned at The Franco-British Council for one day a week between September and December 2012. During my time at the FBC, I gained a wide range of experience in administration, events management, research and more. The work was varied and I was entrusted with important tasks – highlights included being responsible for the translation of official documents for the Franco-British defence website and welcoming FBC members including MPs, peers, professors and CEOs at a meeting held in the House of Lords. The placement allowed me to work with a small, dynamic and supportive team, gaining skills that were invaluable in securing me full-time employment. I thoroughly recommend this internship to anyone with an interest in Franco-British relations.
The FBC recruits interns on a regular basis. Travel and lunch expenses are covered. Ideally, we are looking for candidates who can work 1 day a week.
