FAQs

Online via this form. We will then email you to notify you when applications are open.

There’s a bit of flexibility here, but generally we like to start the Internship between June and September and run it for a minimum of 7 months with the option to extend it for up to a year should it be in everyone’s interest.

The window for 2023/24 internship applications is between the 1st and 31st March 2023.

Once applications have closed we review all submissions and arrive at our shortlist. All shortlisted applicants will be invited to a remote interview to meet some of the team.

Our preferred applicant(s) will then be invited to spend a half day at our office in Leeds. All being well we’d progress to offering them the internship.

We’ll notify all unsuccessful applicants via email. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we typically receive we aren’t able to provide reasoning for individual cases.

Whilst we can’t guarantee it, it’s been done before.

The Internship is open to anyone who’ll be aged between 18 and 25.

Yes. You’ll receive an annual salary of £18,525, pro rata. We’re proud to pay the UK living wage for our internships.

Unfortunately we currently only accept applications from permanent residents of the UK.

Afraid not. Because you’ll be learning a lot, we’ll require you to spend a fair amount of time in our office in Leeds so you need to plan for that.

Drop us an email on hello@engageinteractive.co.uk and we’ll get back to you asap.
