LJMU Internships

About LJMU-funded internships

LJMU offer our second year students (L5) the opportunity to undertake an internship with a local organisation every summer working on a suitable project or piece of work to enhance their employability. Students are paid a living wage on completion of their internship.


Internships are sourced by the LJMU Employer Engagement Team and will be advertised via the job search feature in LJMU’s ‘Careers Zone 24/7’ portal. Use the keyword 'LJMU Funded Internship’ to find the internship opportunities on the site. Opportunities will be added on a daily basis so it is important to check the site regularly if you can't find anything that initially appeals to you.

"My LJMU internship at Sound City was a fantastic experience. It was great to work with others in a large crew on a very exciting project. Being in the thick of the action with only one opportunity to get things right was a huge adrenaline rush and something that cannot be replicated in the classroom. I was also able to work with some fantastic students who I’ve kept in touch with since and have had other opportunities for work off the back of that."
