We’re very excited to give you an insight into one of the accounts internships we have provided in partnership with the University of Hull.
Stephanie, a 2nd year Accounting and Finance student on track for a first-class honours degree, was only too keen to take on this fantastic opportunity with B-Batch Group. A long established and thriving local business who work with some of the leading luxury retail brands, providing specialist shop fitting and premium fit out services to high street and luxury retail clients worldwide.
She spent her summer in a paid, full-time internship; developing her skills and experience for the future. Stephanie felt that her time there gave her an invaluable opportunity to gain experience whilst genuinely contributing to the company during her placement. She also commented that it had given her a real insight into the world of accounting in business and could relate many subjects from her degree to real life scenarios. Steph was also extremely grateful to Andy and the finance team at BBG for sharing some genuine career advice and close guidance with the tasks she was involved in.
Andy Fenton, Group Accountant for BBG, was equally delighted with the internship programme and summarised the experience as follows:
“It was really good to have an intern, I feel it was mutually beneficial for all parties. It gave Steph an insight into what goes on in a busy accounts department and try to put what she has learnt on her degree so far, into practice. Whilst we benefitted from having an enthusiastic student to help out with some day to day tasks and be involved on some projects which we wouldn’t have had the time to focus on without her being here. The process ran great, it was very useful to have 360 Finance Talent involved, they helped with the recruitment process and answered any questions we had. Gary Thompson kept communication open throughout the entire process to make sure both parties were happy with the experience. I would certainly recommend the intern programme to other local businesses; our experience of this programme has been nothing but positive”
