2022 is the year to engage, evolve and elevate your organization with the launch of our new corporate programs designed to switch up traditional methods of talent acquisition and employee development through digital innovation and remote work opportunities.

 

Corporate Partnerships Tailored to Your Organization’s Needs

Businesses all around the world are starting to understand the power that they have in changing the prospects and employment landscape for millions of talented young people around the world, who have never previously been given the opportunity to shine. 

However, the struggles these businesses face when trying to implement new strategies to fight global inequality whilst also maintaining all of the other projects, under the pressures of COVID-19 and global inflation, are evident.

That’s why after many successful pilot programs with organizations such as Amazon, BT, Deutsche Boerse, and many more, we have created three easy-to-implement, easy-to-scale corporate programs that can be delivered to you by our expert team. These programs are blended to fit directly into your existing recruitment, talent, diversity and inclusion, and corporate social responsibility strategies, and are also aligned to the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Success Stories From Our New Corporate Programs

It has been great to reflect on the successes of our corporate programs in supporting underrepresented groups in the workplace over the last 12 months, and the confidence and skills these programs have given to our participants. 

Our women returners; our neurodiverse candidates; upskilling and reskilling hundreds of employees into new workplace positions; helping hundreds of long-term unemployed candidates into first-time employment and supporting 60+ displaced refugees into new opportunities: FY2021/2022 was an incredible year for Virtual Internships. For that, we give huge thanks to our amazing corporate, foundation, and government partners for the support in achieving these milestones and for the impact created worldwide. 

Virtual Working Really Can Become a Lifeline for Individuals Who Are So Often Left Behind!

One of our incredible Syrian refugee participants, Eihab Ballor, summed up his experience with Virtual Internships. His words have made our team so proud of the work we do – showing why it is so important now more than ever to bring onboard more corporate partners to support more participants just like Eihab over the next 12 months and beyond. 

“The internship program has given me the opportunity to be a part of our global working community, and to be honest, without this internship it could have taken me years, and a lot of missed opportunities, to learn what I did in only two months with Virtual Internships… You are a huge part of my journey, to be honest with you, you are a once in a lifetime opportunity for me – thank you so much!”
– Eihab Ballor

Corporate Partnerships in 2022 and Beyond – Get Involved!

We believe this year is going to be the biggest yet for Virtual Internships, and for thousands more diverse and talented young professionals around the world. We would love for many more organizations to come on board and work with us to create much-needed opportunities for more talent to shine. Being great and doing great do not need to be mutually exclusive. 


This is the year to engage, evolve and elevate your organization to new heights.
