Then take a look at the London Councils Internship Programme (LCIP).
The Careers Group, University of London (in partnership with Step Enterprise Ltd.) have teamed up with some of London’s largest boroughs to offer recent graduates the chance to undertake project-based internships within a variety of departments and with a choice of job opportunities. The internships are run as part of the London Step Internship Programme.
Internships on offer include research, administration, liaison and technical roles and can last between 2-12 months. You will be paid an allowance equivalent to at least National Minimum Wage and have the benefit of a tax and national insurance exemption – exclusive to STEP internships – you get to keep the full amount at the end of the month.
Competition for these internships is likely to be fierce, so apply as soon as possible. Get in touch if you would like some help with your application putting ‘London Councils Internship’ as the Subject.
