Internships are a vital way to develop your career. At Southampton City Council we’re keen to invest in people, and our annual internship programme offers local university students the opportunity for paid work over the summer period, whilst supporting experienced colleagues to deliver a specific project.

As an intern you'll be receiving practical and professional training right from the start, being able to put your university theory into practice. Working alongside experienced colleagues who will supervise your development and a dedicated mentor providing support and guidance throughout your internship.

We are pleased to confirm that we will be running our internship programme for 2021, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions, it will be a reduced programme lasting for 7 weeks from July to September. The anticipated start date for these placements is 12th July with interviews likely to take place during week commencing 28th June so please have these dates blocked out in your diary.

In previous years we have been able to offer placements in areas such as HR, Youth Offending, Ecology, Policy, Research, Legal and many more.

The placements available for this year will be going live towards the end of May, so please check our current vacancies page for more information and to apply.
