Instant Impact, the graduate recruitment agency, have been quoted in an article in Real Business arguing that paid internships are not just for the FTSE 100 firms and paying your interns can attract talent and boost business. You can read founder Rob Blythe's comments below or read the full article here. 

The article quotes Instant Impact co-founder Rob Blythe's argument that,

“Just because it’s a short term commitment doesn’t mean it should be unpaid by any stretch of the imagination,”

“Instant Impact offers paid internships to small firms that are growing so quickly that time is more a constraint than money,” Blythe explains. “They are really looking for the very best people and we are trying to find people that can make a real difference straight away. Companies are often less constrained by cash and more by the quality of their people and time to look for new interns. There are some incredibly talented people out there, who are potentially more cost effective than other employees.”
