ARU Summer Internship Scheme 2022





After the success of our 2021 Internship Scheme, we are very pleased to announce the launch of two new initiatives for 2022 – the ARU Spring and ARU Summer Internship Schemes.



Both initiatives are part-funded by ARU giving you the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on the work you do, with innovative views and ideas for specific projects, whilst providing a student with real world work experience and a chance to earn whilst they learn.  Highlights of the scheme include:


  • Access to our talented undergraduate students
  • An extra pair of hands to assist with projects and grow your business
  • Build your pipeline of graduate talent
  • Improve student employability skills to minimise future skills gaps
  • Minimal effort, risk and commitment for your business
  • A fully managed recruitment service at 50% of the cost including proactive promotion of vacancies, CV shortlisting, arranging interviews, pre-employment checks, processing payroll and other related recruitment support.


Client Testimonial

“The intern supported the development of an online training programme that aims to help develop internal body awareness.  Having support from the ARU Temps team to shortlist candidates was a great help – it became clear very early on that they understood what skills and qualities was sought from candidates. The Intern was an ideal match for the team. She was an excellent listener and hit the ground running with tasks from day one. Confident, creative and provided useful input to the wider project.” – Thrive and Enjoy Ltd, 2021
