Universities help students to prepare for their future career. We’re here to help students and graduates gain work experience within a small or medium enterprise through our paid SME internship programme.

The programme gives students access to the industries and organisations that they want experience in and there’s also a possibility of extending the internship, or moving to a permanent contract depending on the needs of the SME.

The interns are paid £315 per week for placements between 4 and 8 weeks. Half of this is paid by the SME and half by Santander.

For the students it’s an excellent opportunity to gain vital work experience and for the SME, it’s a chance to work with talented young professionals.
