Charity to provide graduate jobs in exotic destinations

A north-east charity is giving young Britons graduate opportunities in some of the world's most exotic locations, it emerged today (October 8th).

Raleigh International has announced that it will provide graduates from the University of Hull with bursaries to part-fund placements in Borneo, Costa Rica, India and Nicaragua.

The participants will be carrying out work such as installing gravity-feed water systems, building eco-sanitation units and constructing kindergartens, the Yorkshire Post reports.

According to the charity, the experience will stand the graduates in good stead when they return to the UK to find full-time positions.

"It gives you skills like teamwork and communication skills that employers look for when they are looking at CVs or doing interviews," a spokeswoman told the newspaper.

"Not everyone can do the expeditions because they can't afford to raise the funds."

Meanwhile, web hosting provider Webfusion revealed this week that it is offering university students the chance to take part in graduate work experience in online marketing and social media.
