Secure a summer intern through the UEA Internship Programme

Safiya Waley
UEA

Get your summer projects sorted now by recruiting an ambitious student intern.

The UEA Internship Programme provides a simple, flexible and affordable way for your organisation to host summer internships. You may be looking for fresh ideas or extra support to complete a project, and our talented students are looking to boost their experience with paid work. We make it as easy as possible by taking the intern on for you and paying them through UEA payroll. All you need to do is give us information on the role and then pay an invoice. There are limited subsidies as well to help with the cost.

The keenest students are already searching for summer opportunities. To meet this demand, the Internship Team have a deadline of 27 January for you to submit a description of your internship, and then we’ll advertise your opportunity for you. We will then schedule your interviews for you, and you’ll be able to interview your chosen candidates in one afternoon at the Summer Internship Recruitment Event in Norwich on 08 March. Summer internships can also be facilitated closer to the summer break if this suits your timelines better.

'We thoroughly enjoyed having Lan here as part of the team. Her confidence grew throughout the weeks and she was able to see how different elements of the business worked. She was a welcome asset to the team and we would definitely consider hosting another intern in the future.'
Jo Artherton, General Manager

Cromer Pier recruited Lan, a UEA student, last summer:

“We decided to host an intern to give some much needed support to the General Manager during the busy summer period.

We gave Lan marketing research projects, e-newsletters, website keyword research and website updates, as well as developing an overall project management calendar for the entire team.
