The Scottish Government


This project has now been completed.


In 2013 Adopt an Intern were approached by the Scottish Government to help them establish an internal graduate scheme which would place talented interns within multiple Scottish Government departments.

Initially looking to create 10 paid internships the scheme was proving to be extremely popular with both government departments and with graduates and the number of internships quickly increased.

Adopt an Intern took on all of the duties of advertising, shortlisting and phone screening candidates and in February 2014, 27 skilled graduates embarked on their 6-month internship within one of the following government departments.
