Summer Internship Programme matches over 100 Manx students with local businesses

Thu, 01 Oct 2020

A Summer Internship Programme has matched over 100 Manx students with businesses across the Island.

The programme for individuals aged 18 -25 was one of the first initiatives to be supported under the £100m Economic Recovery Fund that was announced by Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan MHK in his budget update to July’s Tynwald.

The internship programme provided full wage support at a weekly rate of £256 per week for businesses, third sector and other organisations. Organisations were matched with young people and students who are looking to gain real world work experience, build their CV and develop interpersonal skills.

Overall the programme received 259 student applications and 112 business hosts seeking support with 161 projects.

The programme is now closed to new applications from individuals and business hosts, with final work underway by the agency to match as many outstanding compatible applications received before the deadline.
