Work experience pays up to €300

Companies pay students on work experience places between €200 and €300 a month, on a par with 2004 pay rates, according to research by placement moderator Stageplaza.

A large majority of the 1,000 firms polled say they had no plans to raise work experience pay rates. Trainees in the IT, accountancy and technical engineering sectors where there is a shortage of skilled staff got higher rates on average.
