Hear from our 2021 Summer Stars Intern:

During my summer of 2021 I had the great opportunity of getting an internship here through the Taylor Bennett Foundation. It was daunting for me entering public relations especially as I had just left sixth form and was giving up my summer to work. The team however were extremely welcoming and understanding; they took time to teach me everything from scratch and helped me to realise all I needed to enter PR was an open mind and positive attitude. It might sound cringe but it’s true, a big part of PR is being able to work as a team and communicate, social events and outings really helped with bonding and helped me to feel like I was truly a part of TS. I loved my time there and was more than happy that I spent my summer interning with them.
