Through the Stirling Internship Programme we advertise full-time and part-time internships exclusively for Stirling students over the summer. Offering an internship can benefit both you and our students, for example helping you with a piece of research, social media, data analysis and event organisation.
We work with all sizes or organisations, so whether you are a small business, charity, social enterprise, large multinational, public sector or national government organisation we have a student to suit you.
We ask that host organisations provide our students and graduates with appropriate mentoring and feedback on their performance. In return, you will benefit from a bright and enthusiastic team member who can provide a new perspective on existing business operations.
The Careers and Employability Service offer a free advertising service and targeted emails to appropriate subject areas for the Stirling Internship Programme. We also offer free facilities for interviewing, subject to room availability.
All internships advertised through the Stirling Internship Programme must pay at least £9.30 an hour, in line with the new Scottish Living Wage. There is a limited amount of funding available to part-subsidise a few of these internships.
“I am at the exciting but challenging early stage of my start-up, developing our core product - CASPER - a digital tool to measure workplace happiness and wellbeing. The interns that I have worked with have helped to take my project to the next level and maintained a real team spirit so it has not felt lonely on my entrepreneurial journey.”
