Student internship

Mar 12, 2014

LUPC welcomed a new student intern to the team this month. Postgraduate student James Ryan is currently studying MSc Development Studies at LUPC Member the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). He will be with us initially for three months, assisting the team with a range of administrative and support projects.

This is the first paid student intern that LUPC has employed, and is part of LUPC’s developing strategy to improve our sustainable credentials and socio-economic impact across our operations.

LUPC Director Andy Davies says: “LUPC committed to taking on  a student intern in last year’s ‘Widening our Reach’ strategy, so we’re now excited to welcome James to the team. Not only will he support the existing team in doing more for Members, we’re also glad that given our location at the heart of London’s academic quarter, we can help support our local economy and, in particular, a student from one of our Members.”

LUPC recruited its intern via the University of London Careers Group, which co-ordinates a range of internships from London students across a range of companies.
