Nadia Bunyan, head of workforce development for Barnardo’s said, ‘We are pleased the Barnardo’s intern scheme has been recognised as one of the best as we pride ourselves in providing career opportunities for all young people.’
‘Our scheme provides interns with high-quality work experience which allows them to make a valuable and lasting contribution to Barnardo’s and also gives them the chance to develop the skills and confidence to gain meaningful employment.’
