Graduate Internships

The University of Sunderland’s Graduate Internship Scheme offers an excellent way to begin your graduate-level career.

As an intern, you will be working for a local organisation on a full-time basis and earning a wage of at least £17,000 whilst enhancing your CV and adding to your graduate level work experience.

The Graduate Internship Scheme can provide you with the chance to work in a number of different industries in the North East of England and you are eligible to apply for these vacancies up to 3 years after graduating. 

An internship is also a fantastic way to start building a network of professional contacts in your chosen career, something that will allow you to progress into a chosen career path, or develop experience in a particular graduate role.

After the initial 12 month internship, many graduate interns are then kept on in a permanent position with their host organisations.

Sunderland Intern Factory

Sunderland Intern Factory is open to Home/EU graduates of the University of Sunderland, who have graduated within the last year and offers paid internships of between 3 and 12 months.

Intern Factory allows you to make the most of your academic qualification, by providing you with relevant work experience either within the University of Sunderland, or with a key regional employer.

With both part and full time opportunities available in a range of sectors, interns develop the practical skills and experiences that are valued by potential future employers, whilst being employed directly by Sunderland Intern Factory Ltd.
