Get experienced!

Are you having trouble getting your first step on the career ladder? If you are, you should apply now for one of our full time paid internships, starting in January 2018 - because as everyone knows, experience counts!

The Graduate Internship Scheme

We are offering Teesside graduates the opportunity of an internship from January to March 2018 in a wide variety of roles, companies and organisations.

As a graduate intern you get the valuable work experience you need to kick start your career, gaining practical experience at the professional level required for your discipline. We are keen that you get the maximum benefit from an internship, so we match you with an organisation who are offering a specific project, or clear opportunity to contribute to an existing project or initiative.

You will have the opportunity to develop key skills during your placement such as client responsiveness, task management, teamwork skills, business skills, social skills and thinking skills. As well as building confidence in a work environment and developing the contacts and networks needed for successful career development.


The scheme runs from 8 January 2018 for 12 weeks. The scheme is only open to Teesside University undergraduate students who graduated in 2017 who are looking for a high quality work experience opportunity. The scheme is not open to 2017 graduates currently on postgraduate courses. We welcome applications from Teesside University graduates who reside outside the Teesside area.

The internships are structured around a 37-hour working week with an hourly rate of pay of £8.36 p.h. You complete a half-day induction before the internships begin and support from the University's Careers Service is available as required.
