Job description

Make Summer work.

We offer paid internships for students looking to showcase their talents.

We work to make sure that our business has the structure, talent and leadership to operate at its best. Our team aims to innovate, improve and lead change, so that our people deliver for our customers.

Our Interns need a genuine interest in HR, and a desire to keep learning. You also need to collaborate, communicate effectively and be able to see the bigger picture – to help us identify ways to improve how we operate.

During your ten-week internship, you’ll get hands on experience working with colleagues across our business. Working on live projects, your input will have real business impact. You’ll also set stretching goals for yourself to achieve. You’ll be supported from day one, with a great network of other interns and graduates ready to help you. Other aspects of the internship programme include:

  • An induction programme – get to know your peers
  • Shared learning with a ten-week development programme
  • A team charity challenge supporting our communities
  • Support with accommodation, if you’re planning on relocating to Edinburgh.

Programme summary

  • Duration: Ten-week programme
  • Development: Structured mini development programme to complement your on-the-job learning

All our internships are paid at the UK Living Wage.
