Internships for SMEs

If you’re an SME around the Central Belt in Scotland, The Internship Hub, based within the Careers Service at the University of Glasgow, is looking to partner with you.

The programme has been running successfully for over 15 years and focuses on working with the SME community.  By listening to your business needs they can help you to identify proactive and motivated undergraduate and postgraduate students who can help to drive projects forward. The students can provide expertise in many areas including software engineering, data science and marketing. Both full-time and part-time internships are available and each year a limited allocation of matched funding is available from Santander to support SMEs who are able to offer an internship. The service is free, customer focussed and includes:

  • Assistance with developing a job description based on your requirements
  • Advertising the internship directly to students within the University
  • Management of the application process
  • First stage shortlisting based on essential criteria set by you
  • Coordination of interview arrangements
  • Regular contact with the intern and employer throughout the internship
  • Advice to ensure that the opportunity brings maximum benefit to both the organisation and student
