As an extremely proud partner of charity 10,000 Black Interns, we’re delighted to welcome Claire Obeng-Asare to JMA for six weeks as she undertakes her internship with us.

Claire is a medical student reading MBBS Medicine at St George’s, University of London. She is currently in the middle of her intercalation year (a year-long break from medicine to study a different degree outside of medicine) in which she has undertaken a BSc in Genomics.  She will be returning to medicine to complete her final year in August, after her JMA internship.

Claire is JMA’s second intern, having begun our support of this amazing non-profit organisation in 2022. During her time with us, Claire has been focusing on learning the ins and outs of research, recruiting and completing a project on mental wellbeing in the workplace in general and at JMA in particular.

For those of you unfamiliar with 10,000 Black Interns, it was founded in 2020 to offer ambitious, talented Black, Black heritage and Mixed heritage young people paid internship opportunities across more than 25 industry sectors. To date, 2,500 (and counting) internships have been completed.

Designed to give underrepresented students and graduates a flying start when building their career, candidates apply to the programme choosing up to three sectors or workstreams of interest. 10,000 Black Interns then matches candidates to over 700 companies who, like JMA, want to take on interns with aligning career interests. Partners offering internships span multinational corporations, professional firms, start-ups and public bodies.
