2020 Internships

We are delighted to have these amazing interns as part of our team throughout 2020:

Jemma, Social Media Intern

‘I am currently studying Fashion Marketing and Retail at Heriot Watt University and have a keen interest in digital marketing. I have a drive to work with and help those companies and charities that are making a difference and raising awareness such as SOHTIS.

During this internship I hope to learn more about the importance of social media input to helping charities such as SOHTIS.  I hope to grow my skills and experience in social media marketing and provide useful content which will help raise awareness of human trafficking in Scotland.’

Eden, Awareness Raising & Marketing Intern

‘I have just finished my 3rd year of a BSc Geography degree and am about to start a summer internship with SOHTIS, as a student involved in helping those from underprivileged backgrounds through university societies and christian volunteering I was delighted to be offered a position with SOHTIS.  I was shocked to learn how prevalent human trafficking in our society is, it is an issue we must spread the word about.  I hope I can help people in many institutions such as churches, schools and universities understand the issue and know how they can spot signs of trafficking, in order to build a more equal future in Scotland.  I hope to develop my confidence in working independently throughout the summer as well as learn more about human trafficking in order to understand my privilege and how I can use it for the better throughout my life.’
