Bespoke Support with King’s Internships

Provide Meaningful Work Opportunities for King's Students

Our refreshed programme portfolio is focused on opening up doors and access to diverse student cohorts, and supporting research talent at King's. Select from short Easter internships or longer structured internships for disabled students and under-represented groups.

We seek employers that provide meaningful, high-quality opportunities that will enrich the student experience, and in return we offer advice and consultancy to help you reach the most relevant students.

Getting Started

Key Update - January 2022

Please note we are currently unable to offer much of our employer support for bespoke internship delivery and provision and are in the process of refreshing our portfolio.

If you wish to explore how best to work with us, please review the programme-specific sections below or contact our Employer Relations & Development team in the interim via employers@kcl.ac.uk

We hope to resume full coverage in autumn 2022.

Our specialist King’s Internships Advisers work closely with employers to find the best talent from current cohorts of King’s students.

Depending on your needs, our provision includes:

  • guidance in developing and shaping your job advertisements to attract true change-makers to your organisation.
  • consultancy on your recruitment and assessment processes, ensuring you are reaching the most diverse audiences.
  • defining bespoke internships; administrative support for application management, screening and shortlisting service.
  • comprehensive advertising and communications support provided by our internal marketing team.
  • full support, training and guidance delivered by us for students in advance of their internship, ensuring they are sufficiently equipped for their experience.

Taking part in an Insight Project provided me with a great opportunity to use the knowledge, skills and abilities learnt over the duration of my Liberal Arts BA degree so far at King's, gaining valuable insight into the real-life application of consulting and business operations.
