We’ve found the programme to suit our needs very well, enabling us to bring suitably qualified internship candidates into our business for a 3 month period, which benefits both Fonefix and the intern. Some interns have successfully moved into full employment with us, others have moved onto other opportunities, having gained valuable practical experience in the technology industry."
