A Business, Enterprise and Management student from University Centre Leeds is celebrating being selected for an internship with an IT services and consulting firm.
William Chadwick-Wood has been appointed as a Marketing Intern with Frame at Slaithwaite, near Huddersfield.
William was one of just two candidates who were appointed following a competitive application process that left the business very impressed by the high standard of the applicants.
His role, initially for a three month period working 20 hours per week, was created due to the company’s need to maintain and develop its social media presence, particularly on LinkedIn.
William will also be promoting products and supporting business growth, maintaining the website, supporting with content, copy, and market research, and working closely with Frame’s brand partner.
Commenting on the new interns, a Frame spokesperson said: “Each offers different strengths to complement the team and bring some new marketing and business development ideas, for example through using TikTok.
“And there is scope to extend the three month placement into part time roles if the students prove to be a good fit, and want to continue in their final year’s study.”
Looking forward to making a difference
William said: “I will be doing all-things-marketing for them, mainly digitally. That will include working on social media marketing campaigns, improving their website, and writing articles about the business, business plans, and products and services.
“Frame are aiming to be leaders in AI, specialising in imagery analysis, which not many companies do.
“After meeting the founders and Chief Executive Officers I got a real in-depth look at Frame, and how it started and so on.
“I see really big potential in the business and really feel that what I can bring could give the company a big boost.
“This experience will also help me gain experience in an office-based role, give me something positive to put on my CV, and help me explore different options in my potential career.
William is nearing the completion of level 5 (Year 2) of his foundation degree, having progressed to University Centre Leeds from Keighley College.
It was while studying Business and IT at Keighley that William was inspired by a guest speaker to pursue a Business degree at the University Centre, and he now hopes to progress to do a BA (Hons) in Business, Enterprise and Management.
He added: “I have always wanted to teach business as it is something I’ve always been good at, and I would aim to teach in higher education.
“However, I do have a little ambitious idea of setting up a business support enterprise, where I could go into start-up and small businesses and help them find their feet. I think that would be a really good option to pursue, especially as we come out of lockdown.”
