New! 08.10.09 Volunteer posts: Local unemployed graduates can gain up to six months of valuable work experience, via internships available from Keele University. Intern Placements are available in a wide variety of fields including marketing, fundraising, web development, and business management. Internships last between four weeks to six months, and the graduate may work for a maximum of 30 hours per week. The positions are unpaid — but the graduate is eligible for Jobseekers Allowance and travel expenses throughout the scheme. The scheme is open to newly qualified graduates who are struggling to find employment, and to those who graduated a while ago and are now faced with unemployment. Applicants must live in the West Midlands to be eligible. For more information about the internships at Keele please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
