Summer internships

"Doing an internship was a great experience. It helped me see more clearly how I could best use the things I'd learned at university. And once I'd graduated, it helped make the transition to working life much easier too."

What's in it for you?

Our summer internship is all about making the most of your opportunities. It's been carefully put together to challenge you – but with all the support you need at the start of your career.

You'll get hands-on experience. Access to development events. A buddy to support you during the programme and beyond. And a placement manager to provide structured feedback.

You'll also get a competitive reward package and support towards accommodation in Edinburgh – right in the middle of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

You'll need to be on track for a First or 2:1 degree at undergraduate level, and you’ll be in your penultimate year at university. And if you're successful in applying, it could lead to a role on our graduate programme the following year.

  • Accountancy
  • Actuarial
  • Business Change and Technology

  • Human Resources
  • Operational and Business Management
