SCVO’s Business Growth Graduate Internships programme is a strategic business support project promoting business growth in third sector organisations organisations, micro businesses and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Its ultimate aim is to enable businesses to grow and increase the number of jobs, services and customers that they are able to support.  It will also demonstrate the business benefit of employing a young person in an organisation.

Eligible organisations will have the opportunity to recruit an unemployed graduate to undertake a 13 week paid internship or a 6 week paid digital internship. The intern will undertake a specific project designed to enable the organisation to grow their business and enable the intern to utilise their skills and qualifications. The salary costs of the internship will be met by the Business Growth programme.

The programme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The Business Growth Graduate Internship programme has four strands. Find out more detail on each of the four strands.
