We provide Internships to students and graduates to develop skills, gain meaningful work experience and build networks within Wales’ voluntary sector. Since 2011, over 970 individuals have participated in the programme, will you be the next? 

 

What is Explore?

Our Internships are different from regular volunteering, as they are structured, project-based placements designed to complement your studies. Internships are available all year round and are typically 1-2 days per week for 2-4 months, and are arranged on a flexible basis to suit your needs! Compete them during term time or in the holidays.

 

What kinds of internship can I do?

A broad range of opportunities are available including business, finance, education, IT, marketing and communications, events management, policy, research and health and social care. Placements are typically within the voluntary sector, in organisations’ such as: charities, community groups, housing associations, social enterprises, museums and youth clubs.
