Cogs & Marvel

At Cogs & Marvel, we have a great working relationship with Fitzwilliam Institute. In the last six months, we’ve offered three internships to recent graduates, one of whom has recently been promoted to a Junior Project Manager position. With many of our team having graduated from Fitzwilliam Institute, we value the training they have received there in preparing them for a career in Event Management.

Director, Pluto

Pluto has taken students on placement from Fitzwilliam Institute Group over the past number of years and we are always confident that these students will be enthusiastic, responsible and knowledgeable of the industry . Our expectations are high for both the company and our clients and Fitzwilliam students always meet these. As a result, some of the students on placement are retained as full time employees in Pluto. It’s always a pleasure dealing with Fitzwilliam Institute.- Pluto  



Since 2010, DublinTown have had the pleasure of hosting Digital Marketing, PR and Event Management students from Fitzwilliam Institute Group on work placement. We are responsible for the marketing of Dublin City Centre on behalf of 2,500 businesses and are the creators and organisers of the Dublin Fashion Festival, Dine in Dublin and the Dublin at Christmas campaign which includes many large public events to switch on the city’s Christmas lights. We are a small team so when we take on student interns they get to do real tasks during these important campaigns and events so we need our student interns to be highly trained on their given topics and ready to jump right into executing the campaigns. The Fitzwilliam Institute Group has never failed in sending us capable student interns which I believe comes from the training they receive on their courses. Where possible, we have employed student interns at the end of their placement, some are still with us and others have moved on to excellent positions in other companies and countries. - Marketing and Communications Director, DublinTown

Conference Director, Conference Partners

Conference Partners have welcomed students from the Fitzwilliam Institute Group since 2004. We set our sights high and expect excellence across the board. Without exception, the students who have joined us have proven to be, committed, creative and enthusiastic. Qualities, which we at Conference Partners place a premium on in our daily client interactions. As a result, it is no surprise that we have subsequently offered a number of Fitzwilliam Institute graduates a full time position following their work experience.

Marketing Communications, Special Olympics

Special Olympics has received work placements from the Fitzwilliam Institute Group for a number of years. The programme has been a great success with all students embracing the projects they work on. Down the years some students have remained on with the organisation and become valuable full time members of the team. Each arrives with clear understanding of either Public Relations or Event Management and uses this knowledge to work on the various projects they receive while here. As a charity organisation, these placements are invaluable to ensuring that we achieve our targets and ensure the ongoing development of the programme
