Be a Saltire Programme Host

Our world-class development programmes provide high potential individuals at the early or mid-career stages with the opportunity to accelerate their career. A vital part of our programmes is providing opportunities to learn from leading global and entrepreneurial companies like yours.

Our Scholars and Fellows take on challenging projects and deliver results for their host companies – using new perspectives, fresh thinking and an energetic approach. Our programmes are challenging, exhilarating, rewarding, fun - and for many they will be the spark which starts something much bigger.

In 2016, we placed 143 Scholar interns with host companies including Alexander Dennis, Barclays Wealth, The Edrington Group, GlaxoSmithKline and The Wood Group. We are now looking for companies to host Scholars and Fellows in 2017. To find out more about how hosting a Scholar or Fellow can create opportunities for your business please get in touch.

“I host Saltire Scholars in GSK as they inject a level of energy into the business that can’t be matched and ultimately, the interns are a great source of future talent. Their passion to develop themselves and enthusiasm to learn is why we are proud to host our 50th Scholar this year and why so many of the interns now have permanent jobs in GSK.” 

Eilidh Dillon, Operations Support Manager at GlaxoSmithKline

“It's been a real joy & pleasure hosting a Fellow on placement. It's hugely difficult to attract high calibre people into our sector...unlike the corporate world we do not have graduate management trainee programmes.  Being able to  bang heads with someone who has a great set of skills & knowledge has been great.”
