RESCO (the Renewable Energy Supply Chain Opportunities) project has called on renewables firms to take advantage of a new subsidised graduate internship scheme.
The initiative, based at Staffordshire University, aims to match postgraduate students with engineering, marketing, IT, web design, business planning and finance companies.
Eighty per cent of the intern’s salary will be paid for one month to help alleviate the cost to businesses while ensuring graduates receive a fair wage for their work.
The scheme is being run by RESCO (the Renewable Energy Supply Chain Opportunities project based at Staffordshire University) and the university’s careers team.
RESCO said it could help Staffordshire firms keen to make the most of low-carbon opportunities gain a competitive edge.
Business director David Terry added: “With unemployment figures across the region above the national average, we wanted to provide an initiative that can help companies with their short-term resource needs.”
