Internship Experience UK 2021

28th June
The world's largest internship experience is back for summer 2021, supporting students and recent graduates whose prospects have been directly impacted by the fallout from COVID-19.

With youth unemployment at an all-time high, graduate confidence at an all-time low and access to opportunities limited, now is the time to be part of the coalition to improve outcomes for graduates. Your company will be joining top employers, government departments and universities, all with a common goal - supporting the next generation from all backgrounds to access top professions and fulfil their potential.

With 120,000 applications and 75,000 completers in 2020 and ambitions to be even bigger this summer, Internship Experience UK is a unique chance for you to build your brand, support social mobility in the UK and pipeline diverse talent ahead of the autumn application cycle.

The three-day internship experiences are taking place across eight sectors, meaning you’ll be interacting with thousands of pre-screened young people, all passionate about the sectors you hire into.
