Graduate internships

Complete our expression of interest form to receive updates about new graduate internships. We will be circulating information about these on an ongoing basis until early 2018.

What is a graduate internship?

A graduate internship is a great opportunity to apply your skills in a real world environment and gain the vital “soft skills” that employers are looking for, such as communication, problem solving and adaptability.

By completing an internship you will also have valuable experience to put on your CV and to talk about at future interviews. 

A graduate internship is typically full-time for 10 – 12 weeks, working on a real business project or in a specific role. Previous internships have included research, digital marketing, project managers, engineers and many more! 

All internships included in the Nottingham Internship Scheme are paid at least £7.50 per hour, and many of the internships have the potential to develop into longer term and permanent graduate employment.
