PraxisIFM has launched its bursary scheme for a second year.
As well as the scheme providing an annual bursary of £2,500, it also gives students an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and skills and forms part of the Group’s commitment to training and development. Group Head of Human Resources, Sharon Coburn, was delighted to be able to open the scheme for another year. ‘We rely on our team’s expertise, experience and professionalism and are proud to be able to invest in the development of the next generation,’ she said.
The recipient of the inaugural bursary awarded last summer, psychology undergraduate Tilly Ayres, has been spending her university holidays getting to grips with office life, something she had been looking forward to. Her first placement was with the Funds’ new business team where she enjoyed gaining hands-on experience and insight into the company. ‘The team made me feel welcome and involved with what they were doing, I was given a variety of tasks to get on which was what made my introduction to an office environment enjoyable,’ said Tilly.
‘Initially I thought I would be given a lot of administration work however the team were keen to set me more challenging tasks and also put them into context and impact on the wider business.’
The scheme is open to Guernsey residents and offers the £2,500 annual bursary over any three-year degree and paid work each summer.
Applicants will need to provide a full CV along with a statement of 750 words of why they should be considered by Sunday 15 July. Full submission and contact details on www.praxisifm.com/careers
