Get Skilled...Get Working Internships The Junction is offering 3 Internships as part of its Get Working programme. Along with apprenticeships an internship is a very effective way to gain high quality work experience which in turn improves employability and skills sets. In entering an internship with The Junction opportunities will be provided to run projects, work with key partners, create networks and receive careers guidance and ongoing feedback and advice. Junction internships are unpaid but we will cover work related expenses. As such, the intern will enter into a non-contractual agreement which sets out the expectations of each party. The intern will commit to a set of project tasks and The Junction will commit to a series of development objectives for the intern. The intern will not be relied upon to deliver business critical outputs but will be given as much support as is needed to achieve the best possible outcomes. Internships for 2010/11 are being offered in the following areas: Department



Marketing & Sales

Audience Research

3 – 6 months (Jan)

Creative Programming

Artist Development

3 months (Jan)
