Career-starting opportunities at VMI

GTC sponsor VMI has some advice (and opportunities) for recent graduates who have yet to secure a permanent job and are looking to boost their skills to find an alternative route into the industry. Such routes might involve becoming a runner or taking on a work placement or internship, the benefits of which can include building contacts or providing the chance to shine in a particular role.

While there is often negative press around employers who may be exploiting the willingness of young graduates to put in the hours without providing suitable return, VMI understands that this arrangement should be a quid pro quo. Graduates need the opportunity to see if they are suited to the industry and have the talent to make a difference, while employers should treat interns with respect and reward fresh talent with opportunities to take their work further within the company.

VMI runs its own internship programme and proof of the success of this is that of the 24 full-time employees at the London division of the company, six started out as interns.

Applications are currently being considered up to 1 January 2020. To apply, click here.
