Petersens, a Cardiff-based PR and marketing agency has been shortlisted for a National Council for Work Experience (NCWE) Award 2011.

The NCWE Awards, which are now in their eighth year, recognise businesses from all sectors and sizes that provide exceptional student internships across nine categories. More than 200 companies, careers advisors and students entered this year and there were a record number of entries from employers.

Petersens will compete for an award against five other businesses in the category that recognises the best internships in a company with 10 employees or less.

Becci Gould, account executive at Petersens and ex-intern explains the opportunity available: “Petersens recognises that graduates are not often given the chance to develop their skills, as more qualified and experienced people are felt more suitable for jobs. Our scheme helps students build their employability skills to help them get a foot in the door on graduation. Many interns have gone on to find employment with us and Petersens has watched two ex-students go on to run large nationwide PR consultancies.”

Mike Hill, chief executive of the Higher Education Careers Services Unit, which operates the NCWE says: “As interest in internships has grown, we have watched our awards get more popular. Each year we’re delighted to see new companies taking part as well as enthusiasm from those who have entered for several years.”

The winners, as judged by a panel of senior professionals who represent the full internship process, including those from Rolls Royce and Liverpool John Moores University, will be announced on Tuesday 22 March at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London by The Apprentice finalist, Ruth Badger.

This year’s sponsors include AGR, GlaxoSmithKline, CRCC Asia and Centrica.
