Nottingham Internship Scheme

Header for Nottingham Internship Scheme

The Nottingham Internship Scheme provides a range of work experience opportunities and internships throughout the year exclusively for our students and graduates.

All the internships are with small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), charities or social organisations, usually in the local area. In a smaller business, you could be involved in all areas of the business. You could find yourself working with the managing director or owner!

It's a great alternative if you're not sure you want to work for a large company or if you want to get some different experience

The value of work experience

Great experience! I feel much more confident and positive about the prospect of full-time work. The insight I got into office life and skills in Excel was really valuable. 


I feel I have a wider range of skills that I can refer to on my CV or in interviews - real work experience.


 It was such a fantastic experience, my first real job. It will undoubtedly make it easier for me to get a job in the future. I am very very grateful for this opportunity. Thank you for your help
