Department applications open for fully funded Talent Match summer internships

After the successful pilot of Talent Match (TM) Summer internships last year, the Careers Network are providing additional funding to expand the programme and further provide to Schools and Professional Services.

TM Summer internships will run for 8-12 weeks from July to September and will be fully funded from a central budget. This is a great opportunity for Departments to elevate their projects and fulfil resourcing needs with fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and leading-edge skills. Funding will be available for 20-30 positions with an approximate 50-50 split of academic/research-focussed and administratively focussed roles.

Please complete the online form by Friday 1 March to express your interest.

Please note that the ability to fund all roles will depend on the volume of applications Careers Network receives and they cannot guarantee funding for all roles. If you can self-fund the internship in your department, please indicate this on the form.

Careers Network will be responsible for marketing roles to students, collating applications, and shortlisting candidates.  Schools and Departments will interview candidates and appoint their TM Summer Intern/s.

Key dates

  • Application deadline for departments – 1 March
  • Roles go live for students to apply – 14 March
  • Deadline for student applications – 7 April
  • Shortlisted applications sent to you – 12 April
  • Departments interview students – w/c 29 April, and w/c 6 May
  • Departments confirm to Talent Match team the successful candidate by 15 May

As part of the internship, Careers Network will be providing a ‘wrap-around’ programme of support including events and skills development opportunities for students and graduates. It is expected that students will be released to attend these events throughout their internship and a timetable of events will be provided ahead of the internships starting.
