SGSSS arranges paid internship opportunities for PhD researchers to gain experience with partner organisations in the public, private or third sector.
Undertaking an internship gives you an opportunity to make a difference for a partner organisation, whilst also developing your transferable skills, knowledge of different sectors, and professional networks. Former projects have included policy internships with the Scottish Government, a placement reviewing RBS’ strategy for supporting the victims of financial abuse, and a placement supporting an international development consultancy to work with aid agencies in Nepal.
Internships can be undertaken full-time (for up to 3 months) or part-time (for up to 6 months). We run a biannual Open Call Competition, or you can get in touch with the SGSSS any time to discuss setting up an internship with a partner organisation of your choice.
