Get experience


Ever thought about what it’s like to work in a start-up? 

Start-ups and small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) are BIG business. They account for three fifths of employment in the UK and around 99.9% of the UK’s business population (Federation of Small Businesses). 

Working in a start-up or small team can give you valuable practical skills and knowledge in a range of areas, from business planning and sustainability, to sales and digital marketing.

Each year we offer two paid opportunities to current King’s students. 

Entrepreneurial Summer Internships

Gain first-hand experience in a start-up by working with one of King’s ventures! 

  • 9-week internship available over the summer
  • Open to current King's students from a widening participation background
  • Roles can include marketing and communications, business strategy, research and analysis, product development and more.
  • Paid at London Living Wage.
  • Applications for 2024 have now closed. 


In a start-up environment adaptability is key, and I've been exposed to a wide range of responsibilities beyond my initial scope, which has broadened my skill set considerably.
