Adopt an Intern


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.
