An internship is a period of paid work experience. If you are employing a student we need to protect their study time so term time employment is a maximum of 16 hours. Summer is a good time to employ students full time as the vacation period is May to September. Graduates would be available to work full time at any time of year.

The work typically includes tasks and responsibilities normally associated with a professional level position which gives a meaningful experience that enhances the students’ employability and skills.

We can advertise any paid internship opportunity and offer a fully managed recruitment service to ensure you get the right student or graduate for your business.

You can submit details of your vacancies via our online employers portal (the first time you do this you can quickly register to create your own employer account).
