Please have a read of one of our previous Interns experience working for us:

My Experience as an Intern at the National Migraine Centre

I worked as an intern here for 6 months in 2011. It was a fantastic experience for me, as I had just finished university and only had retail work experience. It was a very tough time to get jobs and I needed to develop administrative skills.

I worked here for three days a week, on the reception for 2 days and 1 day doing various other office duties. I gained a wide range of experience and developed skills in several areas. I gained confidence dealing with customers on the phone, in person and via email and experience in basic office skills such as filing and photocopying. I also learnt a lot about the charity sector and gained experience in researching and writing fundraising grant applications and marketing, through newsletters and social media.

Working in a small charity is tough as funding is always a problem, but this means that you work with a smaller, more dedicated team and you get to know everyone. As an intern at a small charity, you get to do a more varied role and you are trusted with a lot more responsibility. I also felt that my work was important to the charity and I had the opportunity to give suggestions and make improvements.

The team were great to work with and Heather wrote me a lovely reference which helped when applying for jobs. After being an intern here I went on to work in an art gallery and an educational college and I currently work at the University of London.
