Southwark students have been getting “cutting edge” work experience with a digital marketing company.

Seven King’s College London students have done a research internship with local company AccuraCast, getting “invaluable real world experience” in the marketing industry.

Naomi Hewston, who advises students on internships at King’s, said: “By taking part in the Business Opportunity Accelerator project, AccuraCast has helped to boost the employability of seven King’s College London undergraduates. The project allows students to act as consultants to start-ups and SMEs, identifying market trends and areas for growth, analysing market strategies or business competitors.

“At a time when high-quality work experience is hard to come by, this two-week virtual internship is an invaluable opportunity for students. Equally, it’s a great chance for AccuraCast to benefit from the fresh perspectives of new and upcoming talent. We hope that this student team can bring value to the businesses and make a real change to its future.”
