The Step Internships Programme

The Step Internships Programme is a scheme designed to help small businesses develop their potential by using the skills of recent graduates and undergraduates to work on specific business projects. Businesses benefit from fresh ideas and the chance to address problems or opportunities for which time and resources are normally lacking.

How it works

Through the programme's fully managed service, businesses can:

  • develop their placement description and candidate profile
  • promote their opportunity to a database of candidates
  • receive a shortlist of quality, pre-screened candidates
  • gain support for themselves and their candidate through the full recruitment process

Your organisation can take part if:

  • it has a business-related project a student could complete in eight to 12 weeks
  • you can commit resources to supervise the project and offer the student an insight into your business
