“We took on two interns in the summer of 2022. Both proved to be extremely diligent, hard-working and enthusiastic from day 1. Assisting with a wide variety of tasks, from software development to data analysis, we saw significant efficiency gains and output enhancement during their tenure, and were particularly impressed with the ability to pick up new activities and tasks at short notice. The fast-paced, rapidly-changing and highly dynamic high-growth technology environment isn’t for everyone, but it certainly seemed to match the exceptional abilities of our scholars” – Josif Grace, Legado CEO
Sadly, the time has come to say farewell to our interns. The weeks have flown by and our Scholars have been invaluable additions to the Legado team. We thought we would share a reflection on our time with them onboard…
What is Saltire Programmes?
Saltire Programmes is a great organisation which connects promising individuals with compatible companies in order to foster their future in business and in turn, the future of business overall. We are so grateful to this programme for connecting us with Molly and Lukasz and we hope that they have gained as much from this opportunity as we have. After this experience we look forward to taking on more interns in the future.
Reflecting on our time together
Our Digital Business Analysis intern, Molly worked closely with our Senior Business Analyst Nicola Kirk, who had this to say about her time with Molly on her team: “Molly very quickly became an integral part of my day-to-day life whilst adding value to the team in so many different ways. Through the internship, Molly was exposed to every aspect of Legado from the change management cycle all the way through to supporting some of our senior members of staff as we carve out relationships with existing and prospective clients. Everything she carried out, she did so with such great care and professionalism. I am truly thankful to Saltire for allowing us the opportunity to work with Molly and I am so sad to see her go, what a quick 12 weeks!”
We asked Molly to share her thoughts on her time at Legado:
“The three months I’ve spent at Legado have been a fantastic insight into the technology sector and all that’s required to be a successful start-up. I have been exposed to many parts of the company, ranging from analysis, product testing and commercial sales. Coming from a life sciences background, this was all new and slightly overwhelming to begin with, however with the help and patience of all my Legado colleagues I continued to improve my knowledge of the role and confidence in myself. I look forward to using all I have learned to benefit my post-university future and I want to say a massive thank you to Legado for this opportunity!”
What’s next for our interns?
Molly will be returning to finish her BSc in Biochemistry and Immunology at Strathclyde University. We look forward to seeing what her future holds, whether it be in the life sciences space or wider business analysis – or perhaps even a future in tech!
As for Lukasz, he will be staying on in a part time position on our Engineering team, so it’s not quite time to say farewell to him yet. You’ll be hearing more from him (or seeing what he’s been working on on our platform rather) soon enough.
Thank you Molly and Lukasz!
