Discover Digital Summer Internship programme completes its fifth year


Over the past six weeks, eight local students have been developing their skills and gaining valuable knowledge about working in the island's digital sectors.

This year saw students being placed with First Central Insurance & Technology Group, PwC, CBO Projects, EY, Resolution IT, The Digital Greenhouse and The Evolution Group.

The six-week paid summer internship has been designed specifically for Guernsey’s post-16 students who are passionate about the digital world and are seeking to work on projects for local employers to develop their digital and creative career pathways. 

The programme concluded with a presentation evening where this year's cohort spoke about their journey and the projects they had been working on including Data Migration, Graphic Design, Project Management, Robotic Process Automation and user testing.

Digital intern William Dereham was placed with First Central Insurance & Technology Group.

“I’m so glad I took on this opportunity, I have learned so many valuable things and really enjoyed it. It has also shown me what it’s like to work in a professional environment and helped me choose my career path in the world of tech.

"Additionally I was really inspired by the work of everyone else in the internship. To anyone considering a career in technology, I highly recommend applying.”

Alex Rowe, who was placed with PwC, describe it as an “excellent programme that gives you the chance to take on new challenges and to get a taste of life working in an office.”

“It’s an opportunity not to be missed if this is the field you are interested in.”
