It’s the season of awards for Adopt an Intern! Not only have we been celebrating being shortlisted in two categories at the Association of Scottish Businesswomen Awards this month, we’re also excited to be announced as finalists at both the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and the Scottish Business Awards!
Our CEO, Joy, is one of twelve individuals who have been shortlisted as finalists with the Social Enterprise (UK) Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2015. This award demonstrates ‘a track record of extraordinary leadership in the battle against Britain’s social challenges.’
We’re exceptionally proud of the social value of our internships and the positive impact and success they are having in the lives of individual graduates and organisations, the wider business community and the economic development of our country so we’re thrilled to be able to showcase this as a finalist at The Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2015.
Wish us luck for the ceremony on 25 November!
As well as this great nomination for our CEO, the whole Adopt an Intern team is up for the RBS Customer Focus Award at the Scottish Business Awards!
This award recognises a business that best demonstrates that the customer is at the heart of everything it does. We believe in our customers, both our graduates and our employers, so we’re honoured to be able to shout about this phenomenal nomination!
The Scottish Business Awards are being held after the Festival of Entrepreneurship, on the evening of the 12 November in Edinburgh. More information about the Festival and the Business Awards can be found here.
