Offering internships and work experience opportunities does not only provide you with the chance to train and inspire the future workforce, but it can also give you the opportunity to bring fresh new perspectives and ideas into your teams. Our talented students and graduates are passionate and eager to learn, and by recruiting from University of Birmingham you’ll tap into a pool of knowledgeable candidates who can bring value to your organisation.
Internships typically last 1 to 6 months, can be full-time or part-time and can be offered to a student or recent graduate. This is also a perfect opportunity for our students who don’t have the option to undertake a Year in Industry to undertake a summer internship or in some cases, a part-time internship during term time if their timetable allows.
We ask for our employer partners to pay at National Minimum Wage or higher for the duration of the internship.
Careers Network is working with employers to create bespoke internship opportunities available exclusively to UoB students and recent graduates through the B-Experienced Internship Programme. If funding is a barrier to recruitment for you, please get in touch following your expression of interest in the programme to discuss options. The funding available will be prioritised to local SMEs, start-ups, social enterprises, third sector and public sector employers via bursaries paid directly to the intern by the university.
You can also advertise any vacancies free of charge using our Careers Connect online jobs portal, which is available to all our students and graduates up to two years post-graduation.
