Student Intern x4

  • Location : London
  • Status : 1 August - 25 August 2022
  • Salary : £1,237.60 (gross pay) for the full internship
  • Closing date : 24/06/2022

The RCPsych Student Internship Programme was created as it was recognised that some young people face a disadvantage when applying for higher education and employment, particularly in the fields of psychology and psychiatry. We created this internship to offer the opportunity to gain valuable experience to those who may struggle to access other opportunities for a range of reasons, for example not being able to take an unpaid internship due to financial responsibilities.  

We welcome applications from 16-17 year old students in the Tower Hamlet area.

The successful intern will join a busy department at the College team for four weeks (1 August to 25 August 2022) four days per week (Monday to Thursday) and will have the opportunity to work on a number of projects. The intern’s interests and preferences will be taken into account as we’re keen to make sure they are able to gain the most useful experience possible when working with us.  

The following four roles are available for an internship placement. See the Application Pack for information on each department.  

  • Project Management Office Intern 
  • College Centre for Quality Improvement Intern 
  • National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health Intern 
  • Publishing Team Intern 

You should state your preferred placement on your application form. Whilst we will try our best to ensure you are placed in your preferred role, this cannot be guaranteed, and if successful, you may be offered one of the other available internships.  This is a very exciting opportunity to work in a centre that has a world-class reputation.

The College values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, reflecting the population it serves.

We are committed to building and maintaining an inclusive and supportive culture, a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We aim to promote a more inclusive environment, which attracts all candidates and signals our commitment to celebrate and promote diversity.

We will consider putting into place appropriate reasonable adjustments for candidates who may have a disability.
