Internships in communications in London

Here are just a few example roles our communications interns have taken on before:

  1. Social media management

    Social media is an incredibly influential force in every industry. The communications world is no different. Depending on the organization, interns may gain experience planning and managing content calendars, drafting content for various platforms, or tracking the success of social media ads.

  2. Journalism

    Just like the communications world itself, the field of journalism is very broad. Some interns gain experience conducting interviews and drafting news articles. Others focus on developing profile pieces, planning content, or writing blogs. Whatever their role, journalism interns are sure to come away with impressive work samples for their portfolios.

  3. Digital Design

    If you have graphic design skills, you’ll be in high demand in the communications world. Digital design interns frequently get to assist in many aspects of a company’s communications strategy – including branding, advertising, and social media. Interns draft ads for social media, web, and print, and may work on multimedia promotional materials.

  4. Public relations

    Public relations professionals are in high demand in every industry. Interns gain experience managing (and sometimes repairing) a company’s external perception and reputation. Often, the work of a public relations expert is closely connected to branding. However, it’s also a key part of promotions, as PR associates engage closely with local media to try to gain coverage of their organization.

“I had a really good experience with my internship and I was lucky enough for that to turn into a full time role quite quickly. Straight away they got me to write stories, go to events and get stuck in from day one which I was quite surprised and really stoked about, of course.“

Miriam Harris Auckland University of Technology

“Be open to everyone you meet - other interns, your coworkers - because everyone has something new to teach you and a new way of looking at things you may not have thought of before.“

Christian Ridder Temple University

“Sometimes when you’re looking for an internship it’s hard to find somewhere where you’re doing the actual work. If you don’t show up a day it doesn’t really affect anything but here you’re actually a part of a team where you can see the work you’ve done.“

Katie Jones Skidmore College

“This remote internship helped me to realize that I want to study computer science and that this is something that I'm passionate about. It's also something that I wouldn't have explored had I not done this internship.“

Sarah Swendseid Gap year student

“I got here and within three weeks I launched a space balloon. We were the first company in South America to launch any space involved system.“
