York Internships

We offer small businesses the opportunity to tap into the skills and energy of high-calibre students from the University of York. Whether you have short or longer-term projects, our internships cover various job sectors and can span from 4 to 12 weeks, accommodating your business's specific needs and schedule, even during busy semesters.

Consider the following project ideas that could transform your business but might be sitting on the back burner due to time constraints:

  • Enhance your social media presence
  • Identify and target your ideal customers with tailored marketing campaigns
  • Elevate your website's performance and SEO ranking
  • Develop a new mobile application
  • Train your team on cutting-edge technologies
  • Conduct vital market research
  • Create resources in languages other than English

Internships bring a host of benefits to small businesses, fostering growth, fostering innovation, and paving the way for long-term success.

Our team handles the entire recruitment and payment process, saving you the hassle of bringing on an intern directly onto your payroll. The cost of hiring an intern is only £13.50 per hour, which covers the student's wage (£12.00 per hour, aligning with the University's commitment to a real living wage) and employer costs (£1.50 per hour, inclusive of holiday pay, apprenticeship levy, and NI).
