Fully Funded Student Virtual Internships with the University of Plymouth Business School
I’m contacting you to see if your PMG members would be interested in a scheme Plymouth Business School is running.
I have secured funding to pay for student Virtual Internships, whereby we want to support local businesses and organisations and give our students or recent graduates experience at the same time. The scheme allows us to fund a limited number of student Virtual Internships. Interns working on projects will be paid at a standard rate of £13/hour, up to a maximum of 38 hours per project (£494), which will be funded by the Plymouth Business School Virtual Internship Scheme. We have run a similar scheme last year elsewhere in the University, and it was very successful in helping deliver specific projects for business and organisations.
Plymouth Business School students and graduates study a range of courses including knowledge of finance, economics, marketing, HR/leadership, strategy, logistics and supply chains and events/hospitality/tourism. Some students will have knowledge of French and Spanish.
If your members are interested and have discrete projects they feel our students could help them with I attach the application form – here – which needs to be returned by Friday 16th April, with funding allocated on a first come first served basis. I do not think the application form is complicated, but hopefully a small funded project may help some of your members.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
All the best.
