CAP Talent, led by Capital Enterprise, filters and matches talented young people into paid summer and September internships with tech startups and SMEs.

  • Candidates are recent Graduates or Masters level in disciplines including Computer Science, Data Science, and Software Engineering, as well as Business, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
  • Startups participating in the programme can be from any sector, must be based in London, and are also responsible for paying the intern the London Living Wage (£10.55 per hour) for the duration of the internship.
  • Startups recruiting can hire an intern to carry out a project or as a trial period leading to a full time offer.
