TalentScotland Graduate Placement Programme


TalentScotland Homepage

The TalentScotland graduate placement programme offers graduates a fantastic opportunity to work on a short-term project with an established business or social enterprise. Organisations of all sizes participate and you receive a minimum salary of £14,000 (pro rata) whilst on your placement (a supplement of £1,500 will be included to placements based in the Highlands and Islands), and projects last from three months to one year.

What would I be doing?

Projects can cross a range of disciplines including:

  • New product design and development or product adaption for overseas markets
  • New process development and implementation
  • Strategic marketing, target marketing and market research
  • Targeting new international markets
  • Exporting and increased international participation
  • More effective use of ICT and e-business to improve business performance
  • Improved environmental management to achieve business benefits
  • Developing effective human resource policies

For placements of more than three months, you will also receive a minimum of two days off-site training, specifically designed to develop additional innovation and business skills.

Who can apply?

The programme is open to all graduates who

  • Have graduated at degree or postgraduate level from a higher education institution within the past two years — international graduates from non EU countries must have graduated from a Scottish higher education institution within the past two years
  • Have up-to-date visa documentation if required — international graduates only
  • Have good English language skills appropriate to a business environment
  • Have no more than one year’s relevant (graduate level) work experience
