CAP Internship 2019
I believe the CAP Internship was a fantastic place for me to start my professional career. My colleagues are second to none and I have never been short of opportunities to practise new skills, even applying those I picked up in my Geography degree. All for a cause I believe in – to be a small part of CAP is a privilege.
