The Newcastle University Internships Scheme provides businesses and the VCS across the North East with the opportunity to utilise one of their talented students within a project based internship. They are designed to offer a cost effective, flexible solution to business needs, bringing a fresh perspective that will have measureable benefits to your organisation. The internships are open to all current Newcastle University students, of all courses and stages, so there are a huge range of internships they can advertise. They can facilitate the internship, providing all administrative support, so the student doesn’t have to be employed by you and funding may be available through the Careers Service to eligible SMEs to subsidise part of the student bursary. There is both term-time (100 hours) and summer (up to 10 weeks full time) internship options available.
The Santander Universities Internship Programme can provide funding to support the recruitment of a Newcastle University graduate for up to the first 10 weeks of their employment. To meet the National Living Wage, through the scheme the graduate must earn a minimum of £306.26 per week and you can claim back £1531.30 after their first 10 weeks.
With both schemes they can offer a recruitment service including shortlisting and arranging interviews.
Finally, any vacancies can be advertised for free by registering for the employer portal here, this will allow businesses to upload and manage vacancies directly. All current students and graduates from the last three years have access to this service.
