Young people in and around the Royal Docks can now apply for our pioneering internship programme, through which aspiring professionals can break into new industries.
The Royal Docks is emerging as a bustling hub for business, and we want to make sure that local young people have every opportunity to develop their talents and fulfil their potential.
In a groundbreaking, large-scale collaboration with local businesses and Newham Council, we are launching the Royal Docks’ Internship Programme, where those aged 18-30 can learn the ropes at a business that might otherwise have been out of reach.
This area is home to a broad range of companies; you can find employers from technology, manufacturing and food production to industrial development, transportation and the creative industries. Working with local businesses in these sectors, we will be offering up to 20 internships. The participants, all of whom will be paid a London Living Wage, will start a twelve-month long programme of full-time work in January 2021.
Successful interns will:
- spend 12-months working full time in two different organisations or two different departments
- be provided with one-to-one mentoring, careers coaching and training
- be paid a London Living Wage salary of £10.75/hour
- have the opportunity to work on cross-sector group projects
