Where can I find out more about internships?

The UK government’s Graduate Talent Pool website has a searchable database featuring all the latest internship vacancies.

You can find comprehensive information about your rights as an intern right here on workSMART.

The TUC is also challenging exploitation of interns through its Rights for Interns campaign.

Intern Aware also campaigns to ensure that interns are paid at least the minimum wage and that access to the internship system is fair (as people get excluded from intern opportunities because they cannot afford to live without pay).

And the government’s Pay and Work Rights Helpline can advise you more in this area. Tel: 0300 123 1100. Lines are open 8am – 8pm Mondays to Fridays, and 9am – 1pm Saturdays.
