Citi wins overall prize at National Council for Work Experience awards

Citi's winning graduate internship scheme is hot ticket for jobs

Financial services group Citi beat stiff competition from more than 60 finalists to be named overall winner at the National Council for Work Experience (NCWE) awards earlier this week.

Citi took the prize for graduate internship of the year in the large organisation category before going on to scoop the top honour. Its 10-week graduate internship programme takes on 200 graduates a year and last year 80% of them went on to a place on the graduate scheme.

Emma Mason, Citi’s graduate programme manager, said the organisation was delighted to have been recognised for its graduate internship scheme, ‘which offers hands-on experience and early responsibility in a supportive and diverse environment that fosters a culture of exceptional performance.’

Great work experience in law, IT, retail and the charity sector

Other winners at the NCWE awards included law firm Nabarro, Cancer Research UK and the University of Aberdeen Careers Service. BP, Fujitsu and Infosys also scooped prizes for the quality of their internships, and George at Asda won the new Best of the Best category, introduced to mark the 10th year of the NCWE awards by celebrating the best previous overall winner.

The judging process involves considering how the intern and business benefit from the work experience scheme, the level of support and payment for the intern, and what makes the scheme exceptional compared to the competition.
