Internships at Haverhub

 

Internships are a valuable opportunity for both Haverhub and university students to mutually benefit. They allow students to utilise the skills they’ve acquired and put them into practice in the workspace, giving practical, relevant work experience to add to their CV. Haverhub gains enthusiastic, skilled and committed team members, who look at things with a fresh pair of eyes and from a new perspective.

 

Many universities offer funding for internships and work experience placements, so if you’re interested, contact your university to find out what they offer. Haverhub is unable to directly fund placements but can remunerate students provided the university has a system in place. If financial support is not available, you are more than welcome to do a voluntary placement or internship.

 

We accept applications from any university, and have already established links with UWE Bristol. Opportunities would suit Pembrokeshire students looking to spend the summer at home but wanting a job to occupy them, or people from further afield wanting to experience life in rural Wales. As Haverhub’s ethos is to support local talent and grow the community, we particularly welcome applicants from West Wales who can become part of our Pembrokeshire network. We may advertise specific positions on university websites, but if you want to work for us, please approach us directly to see if we have a role suitable for your skills.

Ella Staden-Coats - Writing, Marketing and Communications Intern 2020

I’m currently doing an undergraduate degree in English with Writing at UWE Bristol, and am about to enter my final year. After several years of studying, I’ve accumulated lots of skills but haven’t had the chance to use them properly yet. Working for HaverHub has been really rewarding because it has allowed me to put what I’ve learnt into practice and find my feet professionally – now the thought of applying for permanent work or graduate schemes feels far less daunting!

 

The internship has utilised my university skills but also built on them. As a writer I’m comfortable with words, but I’ve also been expected to use software like Adobe InDesign to create print media, WordPress to customise the company website, and to come up with original branding and digital content. This has been a real positive challenge and will look excellent on my CV.

 

Despite the internship being remote due to Covid-19, I have felt connected to other team members and listened to throughout my time at Haverhub. Their organisational values of inclusion and engagement are also infused into their management structures, and everyone can have their say.

 

As a Pembrokeshire local, I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work for a new and exciting start up in my hometown, and to know that my work contributes to growing the community spirit and creating opportunities for others like myself. I will continue to be part of the project and look forward to contributing in the years to come, and to watching Haverhub grow into a successful social enterprise. I’m also satisfied to know that my two-month stint of full time work has really helped the team of extremely dedicated volunteers who run the organisation and truly have their community at heart.
