A key factor in the success of our Saltire Programmes is the quality and commitment of our host companies. These range from large, multinational corporations to small, entrepreneurial start-ups. Our programme and its participants are diverse to fit the interests of our host partners: from engineering internships in Houston to legal internships in Hong Kong, and everything in between.
To date, we have worked with over 220 host companies across 5 continents. Of our 2018 Saltire Scholar programme, 100% of our host companies who have financially contributed towards the programme said it was good value for money, and 93% said they would host a Saltire Scholar Intern again.Email us for more information
A huge thank you to our 2018 Gold Programme Partners.
The Entrepreneurials Scotland Foundation is an independent charity which helps deliver our Saltire Programmes. Support from our host companies helps ensure sustainability of our programmes.
By opting to be Gold Programme Partners, the additional financial contribution made goes towards helping even more students benefit from world-class internships. We are very grateful for this support and commitment towards the Saltire Scholar Programme.
The programme runs annually between June and August for a duration of 10 weeks. Saltire Scholars and host companies are recruited between November and March.
As a host company, you would have a dedicated Saltire programme team member who will communicate with you throughout the year, providing regular updates on the recruitment process. Saltire Scholar candidates go through a three-stage recruitment process: written application; speed interview; and a host company interview.
The Saltire programme team will work directly with your chosen Saltire Scholar to arrange logistics including accommodation and flights for international internships.
We have benefited from the enthusiasm and passion of Saltire Scholars and we actively engage with Saltire alumni when recruiting for our graduate programme as well as other roles.
The Saltire Programmes team were very helpful and any queries were dealt with quickly and clearly.
The Saltire internship offers an opportunity to fill potential resource gaps where recruitment is not practical. Moreover, it gives us a good chance to find great young talent as possible future Novarum employees.
We have had scholars for the last three years and have loved every one of them - it now forms a key part of our annual resourcing plan.
The Saltire Scholar Programme is fantastic! The interns were high quality and the experience was bountiful for everyone involved.
We enjoy hosting interns because they become huge assets to our company. By teaching them and letting them complete some of the more junior tasks they take ownership and produce results well beyond our expectations.
I think the programme has tremendous merit and we hope to be able to continue to support this programme in years to come.
I believe both our Saltire Scholars would be an asset to any organisation they chose to join as they are enthusiastic and eager to contribute to the organisation.
This team made this entire process a breeze. They took care of everything and kept us abreast along the way. I am so so appreciative and impressed with the entire team.
