After over 4 years of assisting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the North West of England by placing students and graduates in companies to carry out short-term paid internships, the highly successful Unite with Business project has now come to an end.

Being part of Salford Business School’s business services offer, Unite with Business is also a great example of regional collaboration between six universities: the University of Salford, University of Central Lancashire (lead project partner), University of Chester, University of Bolton, University of Cumbria and Lancaster University.

Unite with Business was funded by the European Regional Development Fund and supported over 1800 businesses and created over 470 jobs.
