About Adopt an Intern

Adopt an Intern support Scotland’s entrepreneurs to access the extra resource they need to grow their business.

We source specialist skills for businesses and deliver a risk free pipeline of graduate level talent.

Since our launch in 2009, over half of our interns have been placed in small businesses, with 2/3 of those being micro enterprises with 10 employees or less. We have successfully helped a number of start-ups hire their first member of staff and routinely work with high growth companies, many of whom are supported by Entrepreneurial Spark and the Scottish EDGE.

As a not-for-profit, we are proud of our exceptional social value: over 75% of our graduates move immediately into permanent employment as a result of their internship.
