Stirling Internship Programme
The Stirling Internship Programme advertises paid internships exclusively for Stirling students and graduates.
Offering a short term paid internship can put you at a real advantage by identifying future talent early and hiring a motivated, proactive intern who will bring fresh ideas to your organisation.
What’s the benefit to you?
- recruit interns with a range of skills including research, data analysis and digital marketing.
- use internships as a flexible recruitment tool for short-term projects or as a gateway to longer-term employment.
- funding may be available if you are an SME, charity or social enterprise to part-subsidise your internship.
All internships advertised through the Stirling Internship Programme must pay the Scottish Living Wage, currently £9.50 an hour (as of 1 November 2020) as a minimum.
“We gained an energetic employee full of brilliant ideas and a flare for creativity. We had a very positive experience with the programme from initial contact, to the recruitment process and throughout the duration of time our intern was with us. I would highly recommend the programme to anyone thinking of hiring an intern.”
“Our intern’s work has had a highly positive impact upon our business. She has independently remodelled and modernised our company branding, something that will have long-lasting benefits for our company.”
“The internship programme brings new ideas and a fresh perspective for the company. We have really enjoyed taking on a young, enthusiastic new developer.”
“After discussion with the Employer Team, I felt reassured that Stirling had been successfully placing interns with organisations for several years. This gave me the confidence to advertise this vacancy solely with Stirling. They had a good understanding of the optimum timelines from advertising the vacancy, through the recruitment process and then placing the student.”
“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.”
“We have found that it is a great addition to our company to have enthusiastic students working with us, as they bring creative ideas and a will to prove and improve their skills.”
