Do the interns speak fluent English?
All our Interns have completed all their education in English. They communicate fully in English and this is one of the requirements for them to secure a Visa under the Tier 5 Program.
When can we take in interns?
We recruit Interns round the year, and typically the process can take between 6 to 8 weeks from the time you conduct a Telephone or Skype Interview to the time they secure their visa and join you. It is therefore useful to plan ahead based on the time you wish that Intern joins you.

Do the Interns have to be paid?
Yes Interns will have to be paid at a rate similar to that of other workers at the same level.
Is the company expected to house the Interns?
If the company has staff accommodation it will help the Interns tremendously if housing can be provided, however Interns do not expect this and will be quite happy if initial accommodation is provided for the first week or two.
