Work placement / internship

Hi Alena, 

I hope you are keeping well and thank you for posting on the forum.

In terms on Intern pay it really depends on the ask and the way it's written in your Job add

I would advise looking into the below link: https://www.gov.uk/employment-rights-for-interns

So key points to highlight: 

When interns are not due the National Minimum Wage

Student internships

Students required to do an internship for less than one year as part of a UK-based further or higher education course are not entitled to the National Minimum Wage.

School work experience placements

Work experience students of compulsory school age are not entitled to the National Minimum Wage.

Voluntary workers

Workers are not entitled to the minimum wage if both of the following apply:

they’re working for a charity, voluntary organisation, associated fund raising body or a statutory body

they do not get paid, except for limited benefits (for example reasonable travel or lunch expenses)

Work shadowing

The employer does not have to pay the minimum wage if an internship only involves shadowing an employee, meaning no work is carried out by the intern and they are only observing.

I am also attaching an opportunity with Goldsmith University - who are reaching out to local businesses who can benefit from some of their student expertise.

Hi Harry,

thanks a lot for the detailed reply - very useful.

I also like the initiative of Goldsmith Uni. But to be very honest, for the engagement to be meaningful & deliver value to both, the students and the business, it needs to be more than 1 day in duration. I'd absolutely be keen to hear about such initiatives in the future.
