Free Intern with Professional Pathways Programme
As businesses adapt to the new landscape due to the current COVID-19 situation Professional Pathways are working hard to do the same. As part of this work they have creatively worked to remodel one of their hugely successful internship programmes, Professional Pathways (details below).
- Pathways to Arts, Culture and Heritage
- Pathways to Charity and Development (now including health and well-being due to COVID-19)
- Pathways to International Trade (now including national and local trade and business development due to COVID-19)
- Pathways to Marketing
This programme offers students the opportunity to work with a business within one of 4 sectors identified by University of Exeter students as of particular interest. This remodeling of their programme has resulted in now being able to offer businesses the chance to advertise and recruit an Exeter student intern for a week (35 hours) with all associated salary costs and payroll administration covered by the University. This internship would need to be on a remote working basis and ideally fall within one of the sectors identified above.
The internship should be for no more than 35 hours of work. These hours can be carried out in any pattern to suit your needs between late-May to the end of June. Therefore this could be part-time over a number of weeks or a week-long, full-time position. If you are able to offer an internship or discrete project for a student to undertake, we'd love to hear from you and would ask you to please complete the relevant short vacancy form found on each Pathway web page linked above, based on your relevant sectors pathway.
They have provided 2 recruitment windows:
Thursday 14th May (advert goes live) - Wednesday 20th May (advert closes)
Thursday 28th May (advert goes live) - Wednesday 3rd June (advert closes)
If you would like to recruit in the first window, the form must be submitted by 5pm on Tuesday 5th May 2020. They do appreciate though, that you may not currently be in a position to take on a student, however if your circumstances change over the next few weeks, you are welcome to complete the form to advertise for a free intern up until Monday 25th May 2020. Please note, they can unfortunately only fund a finite number of internships and funding will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
