Graduate internships - register by 31 March to receive government funding

Anglia Ruskin’s Graduate Internship Programme takes the hassle out of recruiting and employing short-term graduate interns

Graduate interns are an ideal way for companies to increase resources on a challenging short-term project without the long-term commitment.

The first fifty companies to register for a graduate intern before 31 March 2010 will benefit from a subsidy made possible by Government funding, reducing the cost of the internship to £175 per week (plus VAT); the graduate receives a wage of £250 per week.

The graduate is recruited and employed by the University for the duration of the twelve week project, making it simple and straightforward for the company and graduate. Over 175 high calibre graduates are now registered and eager to start work.

To benefit from the government subsidy and find the right graduate intern for your business, please call Lynsey McCulloch in the Graduate Internship Office on 0845 196 2840 or email by close-of-business on 31 March 2010.

The internships are funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Economic Challenge Investment Fund and STEP. From 1 April 2010 the cost to companies will be £250 per week plus VAT.
