  • Internship nepotism hides six times more placements than are advertised

New research from the Institute for Public Policy Research(IPPR) has found that only 11,000 of the 70,000 internships on offer each year are advertised, with almost 60,000 internships each year reserved for family and friends of clients and employees. The IPPR warns that internships are increasingly inaccessible to those without the financial resources to take up an often unpaid internship and to those without the connections or knowhow.

The IPPR has also warned that the rise in internships (as much as 50% since 2010) has also led to a reduction in businesses investing in graduate and permanaent entry level roles.
