Scottish Enterprise Undergraduate Internship Programme

Scottish Enterprise is looking for the next generation of people who want to make a real contribution to Scotland’s future prosperity.

Various locations across Scotland
£14,000 pro rata for 13 weeks work (throughout the year)
Immediate Start

The Scottish Enterprise Undergraduate Programme is a great way for current university students who are ideally on their way to completing their third year to gain valuable work experience, and get paid at the same time.

This is a great opportunity to gain an insight and contribute to the work of Scottish Enterprise and may lead to future opportunities (subject to satisfactory performance), such as being invited to join the SE graduate programme in 2016.

Challenge, variety and opportunity
Scottish Enterprise works with key sectors in Scotland’s economy, such as aerospace chemical and life sciences, creative industries, food and drink, oil and gas, tourism and textiles. The work is interesting and challenging and focuses on helping Scottish companies to:
• Attract investment
• Develop their management teams
• Do business outside of Scotland
• Develop their organisation, new products and services
• License technology

You will undertake a series of duties – from assisting with clerical and administration tasks, to focusing on larger Scottish Enterprise projects. It’s the perfect opportunity to gain meaningful business experience within one of Scotland’s most interesting and diverse organisations.

These opportunities are available across Scotland at our offices in Aberdeen, Bellshill, Clydebank, Dumfries, Dundee, Edinburgh, Selkirk, Glasgow, Glenrothes, Kilmarnock, Paisley and Stirling.

If you move onto the Scottish Enterprise Graduate Programme there may also be opportunities to work in one of Scottish Enterprise’s global locations, where being multi lingual may create an element of advantage for you and SE.


Scottish Enterprise is looking for undergraduates from a variety of academic backgrounds. If you feel you have a degree aligning with the work of Scottish Enterprise we want to hear from you. Previous job experience is less important than willingness to learn. What’s most important is your enthusiasm, drive, willingness to work with others and a good amount of determination.
