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.

More than £800,000 in Collaborative Projects Fund grants is now available to North East manufacturing businesses following the launch of a £5.1million project by the University of Sunderland.

We're running two very different Masterclasses this spring for Northumberland and Tyne & Wear based B2B businesses to give their sales a boost in 2019.

Are you looking into 2019 with a lack of direction? Does your business feel a bit flat? Well, to give your County Durham business a lift, we've put three inspiring Masterclasses in the diary that might just give you the boost you need.

We’re incredibly proud to have supported almost a thousand County Durham based businesses to grow and develop over the last few years - over one and a half million pounds of investment has led to businesses that are bigger, better and with a brighter future.  You’re employing more people, generating more income and bringing a range of benefits to the whole of the region.
