THRIVE Success Stories

Our internship programme gives our Sixth Form students the opportunity to THRIVE.

The GIS THRIVE internship programme is a brilliant win-win situation. The students have the opportunity to gain great insights into our daily work, obtain valuable professional experience, and we as a company get new perspectives in the way we are doing things.

Miriam Herbert
Data & AI Consultant at IBM Deutschland GmbH

The GIS students were very impressive. They really took their work experience seriously and were incredibly hard working and fast learners. We gave them a 360 experience which not only included what we do as an industry, but also the softer skills of engaging with people which is key to their future. We will definitely be supporting this programme in the coming years!
