Internship grants

Green Growth graduate internships are a unique opportunity for green businesses to access talent and funding. If your business is in need of an extra pair of hands, then the scheme could help take some of the pain out of the process of recruiting.

The intern is employed for an initial six week period, acting like a trial for both employer and employee. If the six week period is successful then the expectation is that the role continues.

£950 is paid to the business towards the initial salary costs, and careers experts at the university can help businesses work up the job specification and advertise the role
