FOR Cardiff Internship Funding Launches

FOR Cardiff and Cardiff University are pleased to announce their first ever joint internship scheme – strengthening bonds between Wales’ only Russell Group university and the city’s business community.

The scheme will place up to 15 students and recent graduates of Cardiff University into FOR Cardiff businesses for periods of up to 10 weeks this summer. Positions will be 40% funded by the internship fund, providing FOR Cardiff members the opportunity to work with emergent talent from across the university’s full academic range at a discounted rate.

FOR Cardiff are offering grants of up to £1,386 to support our member businesses to host Cardiff University students on 10 week summer placements. We have developed this programme with Cardiff University following our own overwhelmingly positive experience with the university’s internship programme in the summer of 2019.

We’re also asking participating businesses to host an insight session for another student to learn more about the world of work. These are unpaid work experience placements where a student will be supervised by a member of the team – this can be a great development opportunity for staff looking to move toward management themselves.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity you can download an application form here or email to find out more.

Cardiff University’s Student Futures team have recorded a helpful Q&A video on the scheme which you can watch below:
