8. I can't afford to pay my intern, what options do I have?

We believe that every intern should be paid for the valuable work they contribute to their host organisation and as such we will only ever advertise and recruit for roles which are paid at least minimum wage (we recommend living wage or above).

We want to ensure that every organisation has the ability to pay for their intern, that’s why, as a not-for-profit; we keep our service fees at a minimum, allowing our programmes to be affordable to even the smallest of businesses.

Through grants and sponsorship we aim to provide funding to a limited number of qualifying startups, micros and small charities who otherwise could not afford to take on a graduate intern. Please email us to discuss funding availability.
