Information for staff

The Employ.ed on Campus internship programme gives you the chance to enhance your team and support a University of Edinburgh student by offering a summer internship within your department or School.

Why host an intern? 

  • To complete projects that may be on hold or will not otherwise be done
  • To open your department up to new skills, energy and ideas - without a huge cost
  • To gain a new motivated team member

  • Help finalise the project and intern job description
  • Advertise internships, shortlist applications and support you with the interview process
  • Deliver an information event for Host Managers
