Money to mentor Uni students

Saturday 14 June 2014

Small businesses in the Island are being paid to provide jobs for undergraduates this summer.

Careers Jersey are running the internship scheme and are offering a thousand pound grant to companies and charities who can provide eight week’s project work to local students back from University.

It’s a chance for students to get work experience, earn some money, and meet potential future employers as well as an opportunity for members of staff to develop their mentoring skills.

Some companies have already signed up and are offering summer placements in the finance and digital sectors, and the engineering and leisure industries.

Undergraduates can see what jobs are on offer on the States website before applying for one.

Any business applying to take part in the scheme must have a turnover below the GST threshold of £300,000 per year and must pay the student they take on at least the minimum wage.

All the details of how to apply are on the States website.
