Kevin Marples is ori­gi­nal­ly from the UK and moved to Fin­land in 2022. Kevin has been wor­king as an intern at Inter­na­tio­nal House, Oulu as part of his Inte­gra­tion Trai­ning Cour­se.

Kevin Marples is a proo­frea­der and digi­tal con­tent edi­tor by pro­fes­sion and he has been using the­se skills to help pro­duce English lan­gua­ge con­tent for the Inter­na­tio­nal House Oulu and Busi­ness Oulu web­si­tes; he has proo­fread new English lan­gua­ge con­tent for his col­lea­gues and has trans­la­ted exis­ting Fin­nish lan­gua­ge con­tent into English.

This has been a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for Kevin to network and to gain work expe­rience in Fin­land in his cho­sen field.

Kevin said, ‘This has been a great expe­rience. I would like to thank all the team at Inter­na­tio­nal House for offe­ring me this oppor­tu­ni­ty and for all their sup­port during my interns­hip.’

’I think I have been able to use my exis­ting pro­fes­sio­nal skills to cont­ri­bu­te to the great work the Inter­na­tio­nal House does. In addi­tion, I have learnt new skills and been able to prac­ti­se my Fin­nish in a friend­ly and posi­ti­ve envi­ron­ment.’
