Graduate intern joins our management team

Thompson Chau, a fresh graduate in Modern History and Philosophy at the University of St Andrews, has joined FSEN to undertake a Graduate Network Development Internship.

Thompson previously worked at the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce in Kuala Lumpur and the British Chamber of Commerce Myanmar in Rangoon. Before joining us, he was an intern at the Asia Scotland Institute in Edinburgh. FSEN is pleased to have Thompson on board.

It is my pleasure to join FSEN at this exciting time with new developments and opportunities. I came across Pomelo, a social enterprise, during my stay in Burma and was fascinated by its social impact. Having studied Scottish history, it would be great to work for the Fife community. I hope my experience at various membership organisations will add value to the growth of FSEN.

What is the Santander Universities SME Internship Programme?

Small businesses are key to economic recovery and contribute significantly to UK employment, but a lot of these businesses fail to attract talented graduates and may need to pay substantial costs if they try to do so.  Santander created this programme with partner universities in the UK to address both issues by providing funding for students and graduates who are keen to get relevant industry experience.
