Internships & School leavers

Providing a range of opportunities for school leavers and young people.

Summer placement programmes

We offer summer internships to students interested in our Graduate Programme. While not required, we highly recommend applying for an internship the year before. It gives you a taste of the work, environment, and people you’ll encounter during the programme.

Our internships typically last 2-4 weeks between June and September in our Glasgow office. They are paid, and you’ll receive an induction, IT training, and a buddy to assist you throughout the internship.

We accept internship applications throughout the year and would be delighted to hear from interested candidates. At the end of the internship, we’ll discuss your experience and provide feedback, including the possibility of a training contract for the following year’s Graduate Programme.

Please note that summer internship applications for 2024 are now closed.

To apply, please email your CV and cover letter to
