Paid internships

Every year we place talented Leicester graduates into paid internships with businesses across the UK. Our dedicated team have the expertise to help you attract, recruit and retain high quality graduates who have the knowledge, skills and insight to add value to your business.

Your intern can focus on one specific project or support you across a range of work. Internships last six months on average (minimum duration: ten weeks), with some employers keeping our graduates on in permanent roles.

  • We provide a fully managed recruitment service including expert advice on graduate recruitment and role development.
  • We advertise your vacancies for free among our students and help you to screen applicants.
  • You may be eligible for a £1,500 bursary to help pay for the internship, courtesy of the Santander Universities Network.
