Undergraduate Summer Internships
If you’re looking to build a pipeline of talent – attracting undergraduates while still at university might be the best way to do it. These internships last between 8 – 12 weeks and take place during June – September.
As well as handling the recruitment of an intern, we will also provide in-depth inductions and employability support for the student to develop their work readiness. Areas covered include: Health and Safety, GDPR, Social Media usage and HR Principles
Cost: £1200 + VAT payable on commencement of the internship
Payroll service available at £150 + VAT per payment

Industrial, or ‘sandwich’, placements last a year and form part of a student’s degree course, taking place between their second and third years. The placements can cover many different work types; for instance HR, finance, marketing, or something more technical. They offer students the opportunity to develop practical experience, to go alongside their academic achievements. The placement is an ideal introduction to the workplace and is valuable in developing their employability-related skills.
