When Silverbird’s Project YNSPYRE started we received several thousands of entries from all parts of the nation. Out of those entries, a panel of professionals shortlisted 50 candidates, who then underwent a live online screening held in December.

The 50 candidates for the first phase of screening were shortlisted from those who had fulfilled all requirements; including opening and funding of their Heritage bank YNSPYRE savings account, filling out the registration forms and uploading their audition video.

Due to huge public interest and the desire to empower more talented individuals, The Silverbird Group and Heritage Bank has decided to give even more potential interns the opportunity to participate in this training, and upskilling work placement project.

Therefore, registration and screening will continue for a second batch of potential interns. So interested participants are encouraged to continue opening YNSPYRE savings account and uploading their videos to qualify.
