Rewards 2017-18

Kent County Council are offering one student a paid internship in the Sustainable Business and Communities Team, focused on developing our understanding, approach and ability to respond in partnership to future environmental risks and opportunities as identified in the Kent Environment Strategy (KES). The work will support the delivery of the KES and help public services, businesses and communities in Kent to benefit from a competitive, innovative, resilient, and healthy economy, society, and environment.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop research, analysis, communication and report writing skills.
