UoL Talent- Internship Funding for Employers

UoL Talent- Internship Funding for Employers

The Careers & Employability Service at the University of Lincoln facilitates business funding all year round through various programmes designed to support employers of all sizes to recruit our talented students and graduates.

If you are looking for an efficient process and positive boost to your business, a graduate or student internship could be the ideal solution. Internships can help your business to grow and develop in a number of ways, including providing business support, assisting with income generation, delivering a marketing strategy, carrying out research or developing your website. Whether you have a specific project to complete or simply need additional resource in key areas of your business, an intern could be the answer.

Students and graduates can bring a range of benefits to your business:

  • Have subject-specific knowledge and experience and are ready to put their knowledge into practice
  • Will bring a fresh perspective and creative ideas gained through their university experience
  • Are able to learn quickly and adapt to change, providing greater support to your business
  • Have been exposed to technology throughout their studies which can be utilised in the workplace
