Would you like a high calibre student/graduate to help develop your business over the summer, at no cost to you?
If so, why not take advantage of our Student Internship Programme. We are looking for dynamic and interesting micro, small or medium sized enterprises to host students and graduates to get them ready for the workplace.
The internship will run for 8 weeks over the summer and is free of charge to you (we pay the intern a tax-free training allowance) although you will pay for any additional costs incurred such as travel to client visits, conferences etc that you require of the intern.
The key aim is to provide the intern with ‘hands on’ worthwhile work experience that will show them what it is like to run a business or work for a smaller enterprise. You get to decide on the skills or academic knowledge you require from the intern to help develop your business. Read more...
How to apply
Successful applicants will be notified by the end of May and matched with a suitable student. The internship will start on/after the 10th June 2013 after the students undertake a 3 day boot camp.
Priority will be given to applications which put a good business case across. Try to express how the intern will gain a valuable ‘hands on’ learning experience. This can include exposure to skills and knowledge such as financing a business, networking, business meetings, delivering presentations/pitches, new product/service development, operations, technology…or anything else that might be specific to your own business needs.
