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 2016 Saltire Scholar programme, 100% of our host companies who have financially contributed towards the programme said it was good value for money, and 97% said they would host a Saltire Scholar Intern again.Email us for more information
A huge thank you to our 2017 Programme Partners.
Entrepreneurial Scotland's charitable arm - The Saltire 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 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 8-12 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
Communication with the Saltire team has been very easy and pleasant. Each time I've interacted with the team, responses have been quick and helpful.
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.
