Seven Glasgow students will spend their summer gaining work experience as part of the Student Loans Company (SLC) internship programme, to help them gain valuable skills to enable their entry into the workplace.

The internships are across a range of disciplines including Human Resources, Project Management, Marketing and Technology. The roles are based at one of SLC’s Glasgow city centre locations, where over 2,300 people are employed.

The 12 week internships are for third and fourth year students from Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow University or the University of Strathclyde, who are studying a course relevant to the role that they are interested in. The will be supported by a mentor who will help them gain valuable experience, skills and knowledge about the workplace before they graduate.

SLC plays a vital role in helping UK students fund their studies and, to do this, a broad range of roles and jobs are needed; from HR to Technology, Policy to Project Management, Communications & Marketing to Legal.

Morven Spalding, SLC HR Director says: “This is the highest number of internships we have ever taken on and we are excited to provide work experience, knowledge and skills to students who will be the workforce of the future.

“SLC is a unique organisation in the role that it plays for the UK Government and to help us do this, we have a wide range of interesting and exciting careers. Our staff are extremely knowledgeable and have a wealth of experience in many disciplines that they are keen to share with our interns.”

University of Strathclyde student and marketing intern, Holly Davey added: “Having the opportunity to work in a large company like SLC lets me develop my skills in the workplace and give me an idea of the career opportunities that exist in larger companies. SLC really appealed to me as I can use my experience at university to help create marketing resources to help inform students about the funding they can access and I’m really enjoying getting stuck in.”
