About Us

ABOUT INTERNSHIP IN BRIGHTON

Internship in Brighton is a Sussex based British company which welcomes students studying vocationally from all European Union countries, and especially those from within the Erasmus+ programmes.

We are a leader in the placement of students into established and supportive local companies or communities on internship & mentoring programmes.

In addition to this, we arrange accommodation in supportive host families or in a shared flat, with the option to take ESL language school lessons and related student guidance, supervision and mentoring.

Those involved in our company have had many years of placement experience, assuring all students the highest levels of satisfaction with all aspects of our service.

OUR MISSION

We aim to offer the best possible internship and work experience to students and young people who wish to undertake placements in order to better understand themselves and what they can offer in the job market. Placements may help you figure out exactly what areas of a particular career path you may excel at, or perhaps to better understand what employers demand from their young workforce.

We organise work placements for students in a wide range of vocational areas, along with related social/cultural events as part of our Classic Package.

Our Business Package offers specialist seminars and internships for students currently studying at European Business colleges.

Whilst our Cultural Connections packages enables groups to experience a wide range of sporting and cultural activities and connections with local communities throughout Brighton & Hove.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

An internship offers a safe environment to learn more about the type of skills that you will need in your future career, so you can better understand how ready you are to start your career, and if you need to develop further skill sets before applying for jobs. As there is no competitive process involved (such as job interviews and a difficult selection process…), it usually allows students to step onto the “first rung of the ladder” and get some experience that will serve them well in the future.

Nevertheless, most interns are usually treated like other staff members – especially in the longer internships – and will be considered by staff members as one of the team. Sometimes, interns might even be offered a permanent position at the end of their experience, when a manager decides they are particularly suitable in the team. Other times, interns will decide to go on to further training before applying for a permanent job. And there are even times when interns may decide the work area is not for them, saving themselves the possibility of years on a “wasted” or unfulfilling job experience.

The benefits are many and you can be assured our team at IIB has the understanding and experience to help you decide what may be best for you, through dedicated mentoring sessions and discussions. An internship is an opportunity to learn and grow within a structured but supportive environment and we highly recommend it.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Let some of our previous interns from all areas and walks of life tell you for themselves in the many testimonials and interviews we have available online. Whatever you decide, we look forward to helping you learn by real life practice: the very best way forward in your career.

OUR POSITION ON THE ETHICS OF INTERNSHIPS, PAID INTERNSHIPS AND UK INTERNS

We strongly support the concept that students or graduates undertaking longer term internships (of 3 months plus) or apprenticeships should be paid at least the UK minimum wage. We also strongly believe that grant funded opportunities have a valuable role to play in helping non-UK/EU based students help identify and learn about another culture, learn other languages and assist in understanding a working environment better to prepare them for the job market.

Please note that we only offer work experience programmes for EU students studying abroad. We do NOT offer paid or unpaid internships to UK students.
