  • Entrepreneurial Scotland’s Saltire Scholar Internship Programme recruits the most promising talent from Scotland’s universities and places them in summer internships throughout Scotland, across the UK and around the world.

    Since the programme began in 2007 Entrepreneurial Scotland has hosted over 1,000 students on internships with businesses in a variety of sectors including finance, technology, engineering, fashion, life sciences and the third sector, amongst others. The placements are all project based which means the Scholars are given real problems to solve and commercially significant areas of work to add value to; applying their enthusiasm and fresh perspectives to traditional challenges.

    By working with every university in Scotland, Entrepreneurial Scotland is uniquely placed to find the best young talent in Scotland which spans a variety of degree disciplines and education faculties. Students progress through a three-stage application process ensuring businesses gain access to a pool of unique talent that will often go on to become some of Scotland’s future leaders. In 2018 the programme received over 1,500 applications from students, of which 171 were placed into internships.

    The Entrepreneurial Scotland team provide the recruitment and logistical support to place young people into a business; taking the time and financial constraint of recruitment away from the company. Entrepreneurial Scotland will work collaboratively with host businesses to create a project role that will add value and then advertise this position to our candidate pool of over 500 students. Once this is done, Entrepreneurial Scotland will shortlist three of the most suitable candidates and then it is over to the host company to interview and pick the most suitable fit.

    Entrepreneurial Scotland run a leadership development programme before the Scholars begin their internship to ensure students can hit the ground running. Over 70% of our host companies each summer are organisations who have hosted a Saltire intern in the past.
