Moreover, a Reference Letter and Attendance Certificate at the end of the Remote Internship will be addressed – this would help you for educational or work application in future! 

Remote internships work in partnership with our recognised partners across Ireland, UK and Spain. They cover a variety of fields where work can be carried out online, from marketing, sales or graphic design to customer service or IT. Fields for Remote Internships change depending on the country, so please visit our website to find more information for each country/city – Cork, Dublin, London and Valencia

Would I be supervised by a Manager? 

Yes, you can count on the mentoring and support of a Manager/Co-ordinator/Supervisor in your host company via online platforms. On your first day, the host company will provide you with all the information and tools you need to develop your work smoothly. 

Also, our team will be available during the 8-12 weeks duration of your remote internship for any questions or doubts you might have, and to make sure your internship objectives are met. 

When can I start my Remote Internship Program?
