Here at SMG we had the privilege of working with Leonard Cheshire, a charity which has spent more than 70 years supporting disabled people in multiple ways, as part of their Change 100 Internship Programme.
Change 100 is their flagship programme of paid summer work placements, professional development and mentoring. They match talented university students and recent graduates with any disability or long-term condition with employers, just like us!
Naomi Lawrence, Charlotte Malbasa, Helena Bronnert & Elly Kirk were able to join the assessment centres and see the wonderful work that was put into this programme for themselves! These were designed to select candidates for the Change 100 programme as a whole, rather than for specific opportunities, based solely on competencies and fair, objective scorecards.
We are thrilled to say we have found our match who will be joining us over the summer. Stay tuned to hear more from them about their experience.
