Santander internship scheme

The Santander Universities Internship Programme is a great way to identify future talent, head up a specific project or campaign, bring fresh ideas to your business or fill a short-term skills or workforce gap. The internships can be for a duration of between 4 and 10 weeks with the intern working on a full-time or part-time basis.

Funding

The internships are paid £306.25 per week (£357 in Greater London) - half paid by the SME and half by Santander.

Santander Universities will contribute up to a maximum of £1,531.25 (£1,785 in Greater London) per 10 week internship.

Eligibility

We welcome every industry, as long as your business meets the following criteria:

  • An annual turnover of under £50 million and under 250 employees.
  • Your business is registered and based in the UK.
  • A maximum of 1 internship per scheme year (Oct 18 - Oct 19) for each participating business.
  • Have employer's liability insurance.

Getting started

If you believe your business could benefit from the Santander Universities SME Internship Programme, get in touch with us at employers@surrey.ac.uk  to register your interest. We will then send you further information depending on your business needs.

At the end of the internship you will be prompted to provide a short feedback about your experience. You are also invited to follow the Santander showcase and join the exclusive fellows group on LinkedIn. You’ll be able to connect with like-minded individuals and share stories of how the funding has had an impact on you directly.

Key dates

Students are more engaged during vacation time, especially during Easter (1-26 Apr) and summer (14 Jun-20 Sep) holidays. That’s where most of them will be available to work full-time.
