Add fresh talent to your business by hosting an internship Add fresh talent to your business by hosting an internship

Got a project you can't get to? A skills gap you need to fill? Want to try someone out before taking them on yourself? The UEA Internship Programme is an opportunity to capitalise on the fresh insight a student or graduate can offer your organisation.

How will you benefit from hosting an intern?

Internships are a proven way of launching a new project, initiative, or bridging the staffing gap over holiday periods. Our redesigned, flexible programme allows you to recruit student interns full-time over the holiday period or part-time throughout their studies, as well as giving you the option to recruit graduate interns full or part-time all year round.

It's never been easier to recruit another pair of hands, as we take the intern on for you. Our dedicated team take care of the advertising, contracts and payroll - it really is that simple. Why not join the growing list of organisations already benefitting from recruiting UEA interns?

The programme comes recommended by 99% of hosts and 97% of interns.

A number of organisations use our special Summer Internship initiative as this is a great time of year to spot student talent and get projects completed. Find out more.

What about the cost?

All of our advertised internship opportunities are paid, however our flexible programme means that you can recruit for up to a year meaning that the internships can last in line with your budget.

  • Example cost for 12 week, full-time internship = circa £3,307 plus VAT
  • Example cost for 6 months, full-time internship = circa £9,363 plus VAT

We offer a limited range of subsidies, particularly for SMEs. Get in touch to see if you're eligible.


David, Norfolk Trails"I would certainly recommend the programme to others. It is beneficial to the interns in that it gives them some excellent experience for their CV of working in a busy environmental organisation, and beneficial to the County Council's environment section in that we get the services of two bright, enthusiastic young people."
