Student & Graduate Internships

Careers and Employability provides students and graduates with access to paid internships. This allows them to gain employment experience and skills within the workplace. We also offer online advice about internships and fair pay.

Find our internships on the Creative Opportunities jobs board, alongside external jobs and freelance work. Careers and Employability monitors adverts to ensure opportunities are paid at the National Minimum Wage or above. 

Recent graduates can apply to two high-quality internships schemes, supported by Careers and Employability. These opportunities bridge the gap between achieving a degree and starting a career. The schemes also try to address the imbalance of unpaid internships.
