In each new academic year Library and Student Services takes on two Graduate Interns on a full-time, paid basis! If you’d like to try your hand at working in the student services, this internship offers an accessible way into such a career. It offers a varied and continually evolving role in which you are encouraged and supported as you develop as a graduate employee. Here’s an idea of what you can expect from an internship in LiSS:

  • creating and delivering academic skills and careers sessions/workshops
  • planning and attending student events
  • creating and maintaining marketing materials and online training resources
  • training student mentors
  • signposting students to appropriate services within the university
  • providing advice and guidance to students requiring support
  • collating student services evaluations and building models for future service improvement

One of our current Graduate Interns talks about her experience working in this role:

“I really love the variety, and the fact that I have a bit of freedom to choose which projects I work on and enjoy them! Being a graduate intern really is an invaluable stepping stone into employment for graduates. You can learn new things, apply what you learnt in your degree, get loads of experience – all things that are essential to being employable and getting the most out of your degree! You’re also free to find out what kind of worker you are, and are able to make mistakes and learn from them.”   (Sarah Smith, Graduate Intern 14-15)
