Internships are a cost-effective method of employing highly-qualified and motivated people to help with specifics projects or tasks. Interns can bring new ideas and perspectives to the company as well as novel skill sets. Interns can be students who are currently studying and some graduates, who have completed their studies.
We can provide assistance every step of the way for companies wishing to recruit an intern from help drafting the project specification to support with shortlisting candidates and organising interviews.
Our university and college partners are able to advertise to finalists and graduates- submit your vacancy details here.
