The University of Westminster is pleased to be able to announce its participation in a new Breakthrough Internships programme sponsored by Santander Universities.

The Breakthrough Internships initiative aims to connect Westminster students and graduates with local, fast-growth small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) through paid, three-month work placements.

These internships provide an amazing opportunity to gain real work experience within some of the most innovative, dynamic and entrepreneurial companies in the UK. In return, the Breakthrough Internship initiative allows businesses to engage with the best of the student and graduate community.

We have eight internship positions open to current University of Westminster students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, and recent alumni (graduating between 2010-2012) with current vacancies within marketing, hospitality, events and conference management, and international trading.

Some internships are scheduled to take place over the summer, while others have a more immediate start date. All internships, however, must have commenced by 31st May 2013 at the very latest.

Details of all our internships and information on how to apply for one of these fantastic opportunities are available on the University’s Vacancy & Events Listings site (Prospects Net)
