How to hire an intern

We've partnered with Gradcore who specialise in matching local candidates to paid employment opportunities to create SouthWRK.

The team behind SouthWRK will work with you to understand the type of candidate you're looking for and help you create an opportunity that is valuable to both your organisation and the person you hire.

Not just an internship scheme, the priority is improving the employability and prospects of young people. In addition, our partners will provide a suite of personalised support to candidates to help them prepare for the recruitment process, familiarise themselves with your industry and get the most value from this paid employment opportunity.

The first step to hiring is to contact our partners, using the details below. They can then help you shape the placement and find the right candidate for the role.
