SFA and Trinity Business School have launched a new programme allowing you, a small business owner to gain access to the Trinity Business School student interns for Summer 2018.
Trinity Business School recognises the significant real world work-experience that small businesses can offer to students. It can be difficult for small firms to compete with large organisations for top students – the SFA and Trinity Business School believe our partnership can remedy that problem, while also providing valuable experience to students.
Benefits for your business
- Entrepreneurial spirit, fresh ideas and insights for business development
Trinity graduates have been ranked the most entrepreneurial in Europe (Pitchbook). Many of the students take entrepreneurship modules, participate in entrepreneurial student societies, pitch competitions and some have already taken the first steps to start their own enterprises. With this experience comes an ability to work flexibly in multiple areas, to have new ways of looking at problems and the enthusiasm to find solutions.
- An extra pair of hands to tackle a project
For example, overhaul your online and social media presence, research new business opportunities, or enable your full-time staff to work on the necessities while colleagues take their summer holidays.
- Access specific skill sets
Students can choose from broad range of business modules, from accounting to marketing, finance to entrepreneurship. Additionally, students engaging with the internship programme undergo personal and professional development in preparation for work placements.
All students will be graded on their work and attitude during their internship. Your feedback as an employer is taken into account which should incentivise the students to work hard during their placement.
Requirements for the employer:
- Minimum six week commitment (200 hours of work), maximum three months
- Employers can be based anywhere in the country
- Trinity Business School strongly suggests that employers pay minimum wage to the student for the duration of their Internship
