Government offers paid internships to students


Current university students and graduates are being given the opportunity to undertake a paid internship with the Government this summer.

The internships, which run between 28 June to September 2021, have been made possible through funding from the Fiscal Stimulus Fund, which has given money to projects aimed at stimulating the pandemic-hit economy.

The internships are open to current undergraduate and postgraduate students, and those who have graduated in 2020. All applicants must have either Entitled or Entitled to work status.  

The internships will give the successful applicants the chance to spend two months working in a Government department that suits their interests and educational background.  

Assistant Minister for Education, Deputy Scott Wickenden, said: “The breadth of the work we do means that we can offer interns a wide range of placements in an area that suits their skill and talents, giving real life experience in their chosen profession: from maintaining the Island’s critical infrastructure to providing world-class health care.

“It’s vital that as an island, and a Government, we continue to invest in our on-island talent. This Fiscal Stimulus Funding will mean that we can offer students a taste of the rewarding careers they could pursue in Government.” 

Students should submit an expression of interest online by 23 May.
