Post-16 students who are passionate about the digital world are invited to apply for this summer's Discover Digital Summer Internship.
The scheme, now in its sixth year, is run by the Digital Greenhouse in conjunction with some of the island's leading digital companies "for local students wanting to develop a career in the digital sector" and "seeking to work on projects for local employers to develop their digital career pathways".
The six-week paid summer internship runs from 11 July until 19 August.
Participating companies will employ the digital interns for six weeks to work on team projects. The Digital Greenhouse has secured placements with C5 Alliance, EY, PwC, Cortex and Resolution IT with more partners to be announced.
The Digital Greenhouse will also work with the students to support their future career planning.
The programme will finish with a presentation evening at which the interns will showcase the projects they have worked on over the six-week period.
Ben Wratten, Programme and Engagement Manager of the Digital Greenhouse, said: "Working in partnership with local businesses to provide young people with an insight into career routes in Guernsey is hugely valuable and has had such a positive impact for those who have taken part [in previous years].
"This truly is a fantastic opportunity for students and graduates to experience cutting edge digital projects as well as showcasing both employment opportunities and the range of innovative companies we have operating here in the island.”
