Our Satisfaction Guarantee

At Budding Talents Recruitment, our number one priority is you, our interns! We work hard to find reputed host companies who offer invaluable work experiences that we hope will benefit you immensely.

Here is our guarantee to you:
When you are placed in an internship, if you are not satisfied with the work experience offered by the host company, we'll find you a replacement internship that will make you happy. Because when you're happy, we're happy! And if you're not, then rest assured we'll do everything possible to remedy it straight away!

When Can I Start

Internship opportunities are available throughout the year, but we recommend you to apply at least 2 months before your intended start date. This enables us to find you the most suitable internship, organise interviews, confirm placement and develop a training plan with the host company.

Paid or Unpaid

Generally internships are unpaid placements as you will be gaining valuable experience in your chosen profession as part of a training program. Some host companies may offer allowances at their own discretion.
