Northumbria University has launched its new Santander student and graduate internship funding. The funding will be of interest to small and medium sized businesses looking for either full or part-time staff on a longer-term basis or a shorter project/activity. The intern can be from any degree or Masters subject with the role meeting your own organisation’s needs.

There are a couple of different options with the funding:

• 2 weeks fully funded
• 3-10 weeks – the funding will pay for 50% of the minimum hourly rate (£8.75), up to a maximum £1,531.25 (35 hours per week for 10 weeks).
