The Santander Universities SME Internship programme

Delivered by Newcastle University

NCL Internships provide businesses across the North East with the opportunity to utilise one of our talented students within a project based internship. The student isn’t classed as an employee and we can subsidise part of the student training bursary.NCL Internships 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 scheme is open to all current Newcastle University students, of all courses and stages, so there are a huge range of internships we can advertise. Previous projects include social media coordinator, web developer and laboratory assistant.

Santander Internships can provide SMEs with up to £1500 towards a Newcastle University graduate’s salary to support your business for up to the first 10 weeks of their employment. We can offer a full recruitment service including advertising, shortlisting and interview support to ensure that you find the right graduate for your company. Last year, 95% of graduates were offered permanent roles following their internship!
