Internship programme receives record number of applicants

Thanks to a collaboration between the Manchester alumni group and the University, an Oxford micro-internship scheme has received a record number of applicants.

Manchester-based global consultancy firm Mercer was introduced to the Micro-Internship Programme by OUS Manchester, following discussions with the University’s Alumni Office and Careers Service.

The company received more than 41 applications - the highest number out of all micro-internships available this term.

Volunteer Leadership Forum in Rome

Alumni group officers from across Europe came together at the Volunteer Leadership Forum in Rome last month to share invaluable insights on running a group and learn about Oxford's Alumni Programme.

The forum was held on the Friday of the Meeting Minds: Alumni Weekend in Rome and attended by 16 group representatives from as far afield as the UK, Luxembourg and Spain.

Attendee Gregory Timofiejew, Oxford and Cambridge Club of Geneva committee member and former group President, hailed the weekend a great success.
