About the Programme

The Summer Internship Programme is a 12-week paid work experience opportunity that puts interns at the heart of the organisation. Depending on the role you could be involved in ensuring we deliver our key projects, reviewing current practices or making recommendations to improve hoe we work.

No matter what you're involved in, you'll be helping to achieve our vision of Glasgow as a world class city with a thriving and inclusive economy where everyone can flourish and benefit from the city's success.

Summer Internship 2022

2022's successful Summer Internship Programme has now come to an end. 

14 Interns spent 12 weeks working across a variety of Council Services, including Chief Executive's Department, Health and Social Care, and Neighbourhoods and Sustainability.

Over the 12 weeks Interns worked on a diverse range of projects, all of which will benefit the citizens of Glasgow, the Council and the Interns themselves. Some of the Projects included:

  • Chief Executives - Promoting Community Wealth Building in the Supply Chain
  • Health and Social Care - Care about Physical Activity and Wellbeing
  • Neighbourhoods and Sustainability - City Centre and River Arts Strategy

These are just some examples of the good work all our Interns have been doing over the summer.

Thanks go to all Interns, Managers, Mentors and everyone who worked hard to ensure this year's programme was a success.

Work has now begun for the 2023 Programme.  This page will be updated with further details in the coming months.  Applications will most likely open in January/February 2023.
