Help kick start a students career

Jonathan contacted me via LinkedIn to ask if I could help him big up The Reading Internship Scheme.

Figured the best way I could help him was to pop in, grab a short video and let him blow his own trumpet or even trombone of what’s what & who’s who… then share it with my known world. Watch the video, if you want to know more give the boy a nudge…

Could your organisation benefit from a University of Reading student intern?

RIS-Logo-RGBThe Reading Internship Scheme (RIS) is run by the Careers Service at the University of Reading, in association with Santander Universities SME Programme and The Earley Charity. The Scheme encourages Small to Medium size Enterprises (SMEs) to offer project-based internships to University of Reading students.

Internships typically last 6-12 weeks and take place over the summer. They are open to all students including postgraduates, allowing SMEs access to a wide range of talent within the University, along with giving our students valuable work-place experience.

The University scheme has a budget to incentivise organisations financially to take on student interns. For charities, social enterprises (and start-ups less than two years old) this can be up to 100% funding, whilst for others 50% of the salary of an intern is available.
