Student and Graduate Placements

If you are looking to expand your skilled workforce in the then a good way to do this might be to take on a university student or graduate for a placement. This can be for a three months while they are still studying, for a year out of their degree, or for as long as you think would be beneficial after graduating.


 SME Graduate Internship Programme                  

The SME Intern programme provides local companies with the opportunity to benefit from offering a three month internship, which is co-funded by Santander Universities and the University of Chester. The co-funding enables you to offer a minimum salary of £1000 per month to an intern, whereby £500 of each month's salary is contributed through the Santander SME Intern Programme. You will just need to pay the remaining £500 per month towards the intern's salary.

Through the SME Intern programme you can recruit 2nd, 3rd and final year students or graduates of the University of Chester.
