Employ an Intern

What is an Internship

An internship is a meaningful work placement and should last a minimum of 4 weeks. Internships supported by Southwark Council and our partners must:

  • offer a structured opportunity to complete “real work”
  • pay a minimum of London Living Wage  
  • include standard employee benefits
  • be offered to undergraduates, recent graduates, or sixth form students who are residents of Southwark

Employers are also encouraged to work towards the Mayor’s Good Work Standard when employing an intern; the standard can help your organisation to contribute to a fairer and more inclusive London economy.
