4. What is an internship?

An Adopt an Intern internship is a paid, fixed-term, project-based post. Interns can help you complete workplace projects, which you may not have previously had the time, talent or resource to do, within a reasonable timescale and at little cost. Internships are also a great way to fill urgent employment gaps in your organisation such as maternity leave or sabbaticals.

Internships allow candidates to gain valuable applied experience while giving employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate emerging talent. Our interns are work-ready so in the majority of cases would not require additional training upon entering your organisation.
