How it works


HIP is quite simply about matching the needs of ambitious growth focused small business with the best talent the region has to offer. Designed to increase growth and talent retention HIP offers students and graduates an opportunity to gain invaluable industry experience though supported 12-week internships. SMEs will employ and support the intern and the HIP programme will provide a 40% subsidy toward the costs whilst also working alongside the SME and the intern throughout the 12-weeks to make sure everyone benefits and grows from the experience.
