what our interns have to say

Jordan Daly

From day one of the CLV internship, I was made to feel like a valued member of the team. The culture and friendliness of the office instantly puts you at ease, as well as the constant support from a very talented and experienced group of team leaders. The opportunity to work in the London offices was undoubtedly the highlight of my programme.

Ramal Hassan

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working at CLV during the summer as a Business Development Intern. I gained some great skills such as time management, organization, confidence and a broader knowledge into the role. I had a great task manager who helped and supported me along the way and a great general manager who boosted my confidence and always pushed me further to go above and beyond to excel in my role. I made some great life long friends along the way and enjoyed the office working environment at CLV too.
