Intern's testimony:

'My communications internship at the LIDC has been a fantastic and thoroughly rewarding experience. Responsible for producing the centre's daily and weekly media briefings, promoting events and raising LIDC's profile via social media and their website, I was able to gain valuable communications experience as well as a comprehensive insight into the broad range of innovative projects and cross-sector development research the LIDC facilitates.

I was given the freedom to explore areas of communications I was interested in, such as expanding the centre's use of social media outlets, and build upon my knowledge of key current issues in development research, policy and practice.

With an ambition to forward a career in the development field, the internship offered great practical experience in a stimulating and supportive environment that will no doubt prove invaluable in future employment. Thank you, LIDC!'
