Santander backs Plymouth internship scheme

Santander backs Plymouth internship scheme

Santander Corporate and Commercial is to pay for interns to work in Plymouth's small and medium-sized businesses under a new scheme aimed at boosting the city economy. The bank is working with a network of universities, including Plymouth, on a placement programme for graduates and will pay half the cost of a three-month internship and provide mentoring and coaching support. The project, part of Santander's Breakthrough in Action programme to boost SMEs, started last month and is already involved with 1,500 internships nationally – including 40 in Plymouth. David Bird, regional director at Santander Corporate and Commercial, said: 'We've been talking to Plymouth Business School and I'm keen on how we can work with other partners to improve the city's knowledge base and retain talent.'
