Intern-National Ireland Ltd. of Dublin (please visit internships.ie for more information about the training agency) INI is dedicated to the development and evolution of internship and work experience programmes in Ireland. The importance of a consistent high level of service to partner organisations, host companies, and applicants, is detrimental to the promotion of Ireland as a destination for work experience programmes. Through experience and enthusiasm for such programmes, InternNational Ireland guarantees an 'individual' level of service to all applicants and maintains the philosophy that we do what is in the best interest of each applicant. This includes mentoring and advice when needed, together with full support before and during the placement. Our extensive list of active and willing host companies ensures applicants are placed into organisations relevant to their choices while also taking into account their personal and professional abilities. Our host families are selected based on the warmth of their welcome and their ability to assist each applicant with their integration into Irish society.
