Internships in PR in London

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

  1. Web Content

    Creating content for the web is a  key element of many internships in PR in London. From social media and LinkedIn posts to updated website pages, PR professionals spend a lot of time creating and drafting written content. Interns gain experience writing for specific audiences and platforms, as well as writing with the company’s voice and brand in mind.

  2. Copywriting

    Copywriting interns gain experience drafting press releases, newsletters, and partnership announcements, to name just a few. Depending on the industry, an organization may publish a quarterly magazine or an annual organizational update. Frequently, PR professionals draft content for company leadership, including speeches, internal letters, and statements.

  3. Social Media

    For many companies and nonprofits, social media platforms are a key part of promoting a brand. Interns may gain experience in everything from creating a publication calendar for various platforms to responding to customer comments and messages. Social media is also a great way to gain support for fundraisers, events, and product launches.

  4. Brand Partnerships

    Brand partnership is an exciting area of public relations because it allows interns to work closely with professionals outside their own organization. Many organizations use partnerships to grow their audience, garner attention for a campaign or fundraiser or create close ties within an industry.

The industry

Public relations is a career field that can be found in every country, company, and industry around the world. Top global PR firms may advise hundreds of organizations, while boutique firms often specialize within an industry, for example healthcare. Experts in the industry are focused on building and promoting a certain image for their company, and work closely with local media as well as organizations in the wider industry to do so. The industry is constantly growing and changing, and is increasingly connected to fields like fundraising, advertising, and finance.

“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.“
