Our Organisation: We are Intern Europe Ltd (formerly known as RSM Tenon International Services). For over 14 years we have been delivering work experiences in Belfast for participants from all over Europe. We manage all aspects of their mobility programmes in close cooperation with our European partners and local host companies. Our team is based in Botanic and currently consists of 10 dedicated members of staff.

Our Participants: Our programmes are developed for participants between 16 and 30 years, who aim to increase their professional skills and language abilities, as well as their cultural awareness. The work placement period typically lasts from 2 to 12 weeks and consists of full-time work in a local host company of the participant’s profession. To cover their living costs in the UK, most of our participants receive a grant from the EU. During their stay, our team engages with the participants through placement visits, meetings in our office, social evening activities or cultural trips at the weekends.

Our Hosts: Living with a host family during their mobility experience has many advantages for our participants, especially from a cultural and language aspect. Our hosts live within the greater Belfast area, are big or small

families, live alone, have pets, have kids, live in houses or apartments. They are "norn iron born and bread" or have once come here from abroad themselves. Many of our hosts tell us that they enjoy having a young person in their home for the company or the new cultural perspectives they bring. We welcome all people with all backgrounds, motivations and circumstances to become part of our network.

Our Expectations and Offer: Our first and foremost hope is of course that our participants will feel at ease and at home with you. That you open your doors and make them feel welcome means a lot to us. The participants are to be provided with breakfast and dinner. You are not expected to be their guardian unless you host a minor (16-17 yr old). Since the participants are completing full-time work placements during the week, they won’t be at home during the day. We will also make sure that they are advised about the commute from your house to their work place by public transport. For hosting one of our participants we offer up to £125 compensation per week.

What happens next? Becoming a host in 7 easy steps:

1. Get in touch with us! We will answer as quickly as possible.

2. One home visit and a registration form is a requirement for new hosts. Please complete the form sent to you and send it back to me via email. I will then contact you to arrange a date for a visit.

3. Once we have received a homestay booking, we will match the future participant with a suitable host family. We will contact you and liaise with you about all details and if this would work for you.

4. If you have confirmed to host a participant we will send more information, e.g. their cv, a picture, information on their placement, etc.

5. We organise the transfer of the participant to your house on the day of their arrival. Usually on the following day they come to our office for induction. On the day after this they usually start at their work place. We are always contactable via our 24/7 helpline service by the participant or yourself in any case of emergency during their stay.

6. On the day of departure we arrange the transfer for the participant to their airport/ bus station and will inform you about the details.

7. We will be in touch in order to carry out some evaluation.

I hope this was helpful for you. If there are any remaining questions please let me know.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon
