Information about our 2013 Internship programme will be published soon.
Each year the JRF/JRHT run a four month paid internship. This offers graduates real opportunities to gain high quality work experience undertaking meaningful projects or tasks that will benefit the organisation. The programme is designed to tap into graduates’ knowledge and fresh ideas, and for interns to gain an interesting and useful introduction to the workplace which will help their future employment prospects.
We advertise for the placements in mid-May each year on our JRF/JRHT websites together with a number of other websites which in previous years have included www.reed.co.uk,the Guardian on-line, Disability Now and various University career websites. Interviews are usually in mid June/early July. Successful applicants are expected to start at the beginning of September and work through to Christmas.
Each year we get over 400 applicants and so applications need to be well presented with candidates having thought through why they want an internship with us. Please note we only accept applications in response to the advert and within the time period specified in the advert.
This is not your stereotypical internship; being given responsibility and the chance to use your own initiative. Quite quickly you become a trusted, integral part of the organisation and your contribution is valued with the same quality as anyone else's.
The support network from ALL staff and the opportunities that are made available to interns was invaluable for my professional development.
The meaningful nature of the JRF/JRHT projects sets this programme aside from other programmes - really excellent!
JRF is such a fantastic place to be an intern – everyone is really friendly and inspirational and the opportunities it affords are so valuable.
