Paid internships

Internships are a brilliant way to gain practical and relevant work experience. You will be able to see if the career you were thinking about really is the one for you and it will look great on your CV.

Our paid internships are designed for university and college leavers in order to help you to develop invaluable skills with hands on experience in the working world.

We have internships across a range of departments, teams and locations, from Graphic Design to Business Administration. You will receive between £15,807 - £16,781 a year and will be placed on a fixed term contract which can vary from three months to a year.

You can look forward to the support and guidance you need, especially when undertaking new tasks. However, when you find your feet we’ll give you more and more responsibilities and independence.

How to apply

Register your interest for future internships. We’ll then be in touch shortly with the latest opportunities.

Traineeships

Traineeships are a great way to increase your career chances by providing you with valuable work skills and improving your confidence to achieve your next step.

Hertfordshire Adult and Family Learning Service (HAFLS) are offering a business and adminsitration traineeship scheme for Hertfordshire residents aged 19-24.

We'd ask you to attend 4-5 days a week, for up to 12 weeks to develop workplace skills in:

  • Administration
  • Maths
  • English
  • Employability skills (such as CV writing)

By the time you finish, you'd have increased confidence and will be able to plan your next steps into the world of work, apprenticeships or further education.

You'll also get a Gateway Qualification at Level 1 in Skills for Business and Administration and achieve City and Guilds qualifications in Maths and/or English (unless you already have A-C at GCSE).

During your time, you'll complete a 6-8 week work experience placement with a Hertfordshire employer.  Work experience is unpaid but you will receive a contribution towards your daily travel and lunch costs.

Who we're looking for

We want 19-24 year olds who aren't currently in education or employment and who haven't already obtained a full Level 3 qualification. Whilst GCSEs are desirable, they aren't essential as we will assess your levels before you start.

Most importantly, you'll need to be motivated to learn, be ready to apply yourself in a work environment, have a positive attitude and be ready to develop your skills for your future career.
