Reading Internship Scheme 2019

Primary interest
Voluntary sector

The University of Reading have launched their Reading Internship Scheme for 2019. Now in its fifth year, the scheme aims to ensure that students are getting meaningful work experience and are able to apply and develop transferable business skills. The University are looking for host organisations that are looking to grow their talent pipeline by offering a genuine learning experience to a Reading student or recent graduate. 

Organisations can apply to take on a University of Reading student or recent graduate as an intern for 4 to 8 weeks. Grants are available, covering 100% of the intern’s salary cost for charities, and 50% for SMEs. Organisations should have 1 to 249 employees, an annual turnover of less than £50 million, and be within commuting distance of Reading.
