SVE Intern Runner Up at University of Stirling STAR Awards
Congratulations go to our Accountancy Assistant Intern Reiss Callaghan who was Runner Up for the Santander Intern of the Year at the Stirling University Careers And Advisers Awards ceremony last night. Reiss was with SVE during 2018 through a paid internship that was set up exclusively for Stirling University Students or graduates.
The internships are within small to medium sized companies (mainly in the central belt of Scotland) or within the University of Stirling itself. Reiss’s internship was part-funded by Santander who provided us with a small subsidy for the costs of employment. This Internships was initially for one day a week for ten weeks. Reiss worked with local charities to help prepare their accounts for submission to the charity regulator. Reiss said
'I was very proud to receive an hounorable mention award at Stirling University's STAR awards ceremony last night for my internship work with SVE.
SVE provided me a great platform to utilise my skills developed from university in real world scenarios, providing the third sector with much needed accountancy and financial support.
The SVE team were so supportive of me and I am grateful for everyone's guidance, help and time that they afforded me and allowed me to develop throughout my internship. My experience was so rewarding and has since helped me to take the next step in my career in obtaining a graduate accountancy role to undertake my professional accountancy qualifications.
So I thank the SVE team and hope they can continue to deliver their quality services and opportunities to others to develop similarly to myself.'
