“Taking on a summer intern was a great success for us, our candidate was more than we could have hoped for;  professional, personable, extremely knowledgeable and keen to learn and contribute to our organisation. UCB kept in touch and monitored progress throughout the 8 week period, they made it a very easy and straightforward process."
