  • Free marketing of your specific intern placement via Wired Sussex
  • Our skilled in-house matching service will filter and select applications so that you get an individual chosen for their ability to match your business needs for a 6-week placement
  • External HR support: all contracts and grants to interns will be managed by Wired Sussex
  • 60% of the intern’s grant will be covered by the scheme
  • Full business and administrative support throughout the process
  • No fees should you wish to continue to employ the intern after the initial 6 week placement

Eligibility to take part:

  • You will need to be a registered company located within the Coast to Capital LEP area
  • The activity you would like undertaken by the intern should be meaningful and allow the intern to develop their creative, digital, media, technological or IT skills.
  • What’s needed from you?
  • Registration, detailing why you would like an intern
  • Time for us to meet you at your place of work to agree the scope of the intern’s project
  • A commitment to fairly interview the candidates we shortlist

During my initial conversation with the WS Intern Placement Programme team, they really took the time to talk to us and understand our company culture and skill requirements to help us find the right person for the role. They then took all the time and stress out of the hiring process by selecting a shortlist of candidates suitable for the role, holding initial phone interviews with the shortlisted candidates, and arranging face-to-face interviews for us with the best of the bunch.
