Since 2017, SHBC has recruited undergraduates to work on real projects for the Council during their study breaks via our Summer Internship programme.

Designed to provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience within a Local Authority, the placements can last between four weeks through to three months.

Open to undergraduates and graduates, interns will typically gain experience in Information Technology, Transformation, Media & Marketing and Business.  

TaraRecent intern Tara said: "The past two summers I have worked in economic development, investment and development, event planning, PR, and even been involved the Town Centre’s promo videos. It’s been an amazing experience overall and really useful.” 

Stuart, also a previous SHBC intern, added: “As an English Literature student, working in the IT department was an eye-opening experience for me, and incredibly rewarding. I’ve had the chance to get to grips with something far removed from my typical ‘comfort zone’ and ultimately make my skill set more well-rounded and wide-ranging.”

Details of summer internship opportunities for 2020 will be published in the autumn.
