The Big Lottery Fund

Research Intern

January 2014

The Big Lottery Fund’s experience of Adopt an Intern has been very positive. We were very impressed with the number and calibre of applications received in response to the initial advert. We also liked that the initiative was flexible enough to allow us to use our own recruitment processes to select the final candidate.

We are delighted with the performance of the intern selected for the post. From the outset, Elisa settled into our Policy Team incredibly well and her work ethic has been tremendous. Elisa was able to hit the ground running with the research project that we had set out for her. Her manner has been very professional and we have been very impressed with her ability to build relationships quickly.

Elisa is now in the final few days of her research project, however her internship has been extended to allow her to take up an opportunity in a different part of the business until the end of March. The extension of Elisa’s contract is testimony to the work that she has produced and the way that she has conducted herself in the past three months.
