Do you believe in the value of Higher Education? Do you want to make a real difference to the experience of future generations of students? Do you want to gain a wealth of experience working in an innovative, dynamic and student-focused environment?

This internship, aimed exclusively at Sheffield Hallam Graduates, offers an invaluable opportunity to enhance your knowledge of the Higher Education sector as you gain insight into the way a University operates. You will play an integral part in developing and delivering strategic projects for the faculty, and the departments that operate within it.

There are four one-year positions available which will include a variety of projects with a specific focus which will give you extensive experience as you work alongside different teams and individuals across the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing and wider University. The areas of focus include Student Communication (1 post), Graduate Futures (1 post), and Innovations in Teaching (2 posts). With each role you will have the opportunity to enhance and develop strong communication and project management skills equipping you for your future career.

Graduates will be expected to work with initiative, enthusiasm and ownership. You should have an awareness of the Higher Education sector and current challenges, and be focused on the needs of students. With strong communication and interpersonal skills, you should also be confident in delivering your work and duties to a high standard. The ability to work to an extremely high level of accuracy and prioritise effectively in an ever changing environment is essential.

For non-EU applicants, we won't be able to provide a certificate of sponsorship / visa for this job.

A graduate internship is a time-limited, structured work experience which also includes an element of training. It provides work experience and skills development that can enhance your employability and career prospects, helping you transition into the world of work and prepare you for future employment.

In the interests of fairness and equality of opportunity, our internships will not normally exceed a 12 month period; therefore you will not be eligible to apply for consecutive internships that exceed this duration.
