Are you an SME or charity in the Sheffield City Region who could provide a student internship? Could you benefit from receiving 100% funding for the role?

The University of Sheffield’s Santander Universities Employability Scheme is now open for 2021!

There are 10 x Β£1000 grants available for SMEs and Charities within the Sheffield City Region to apply for, to host a student internship of between 70 and 108 hours. 

The Santander Universities Employability Scheme provides your business with a talented professional who will bring new ideas to your team and helps students to gain real industry experience.

Funding is not allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and the team are particularly interested in receiving applications from organisations in sectors where unpaid work experience is the norm so they can provide a paid experience for a student in this area, and/or in sectors that the current pandemic has hit hardest so we can support local businesses in these areas.Β 

View the full information pack here – this includes a link to the application form and our recruitment guidance. 

Deadline for applications is midnight Sunday 11th April 2021
