SME mobile businesses in London are being encouraged to take on graduate interns through the London Innovation Placement Programe.
The programme is designed to help SMEs across London become more competitive by undertaking practical projects and hiring recent graduates to help them.
Placements cost £250 plus VAT per week and last from four to 12 weeks.
The intern will receive a weekly training allowance of £220 per week. Companies will then be entitled to a £500 rebate towards the cost of the intern’s placement.
Students are short-listed to meet specific business requirements and the programme provide candidates from all academic disciplines. Businesses can also apply for a further grant of up to £2,500 for further academic consultancy as part of the scheme.
