Federation of Small Businesses tells Govt to create 5000 interns to help graduate unemployment

The Government has been urged to create 5,000 new internship placements in small businesses to tackle “soaring” graduate unemployment.

The Federation of Small Businesses said £3 million should be allocated to market and develop thousands of internships and jobs this year.

The move would save the Government £600 for each graduate on such a scheme as they would not be claiming any unemployment benefit, said the federation.

Chairman John Wright said: “Graduate unemployment is set to soar to unprecedented levels this year as businesses struggle to make ends meet and cut back on recruiting university leavers.

“In a graduate internship scheme, graduates can offer key skills to help businesses move forward while at the same time ensuring they are learning new skills and not unemployed at a crucial time in their careers.”

As  a graduate looking for work myself, the last thing I want is another bloody internship. Give me a proper job with proper pay and a proper future!
