Internships last for sixteen weeks for a total of 21 hours per week, and are flexible and unpaid, through travel expenses are recouped. We recruit on a regular basis, in a variety of roles.
"The environment of Calderstones Park alone made the Reader a lovely place to work. Reader staff were incredibly friendly, and made interns feel very welcome. This welcoming culture was epitomised by the culture of shared reading and of staff sharing lunch and socialising together on Monday. I felt highly valued, and was happy to be working for a growing and ambitious organisation whose work was of great benefit to countless people."
"I have found this internship extremely interesting and I have enjoyed finding out what happens ‘behind the scenes’ of organisations such as The Reader. Being involved in the People Team has helped me realise what it is I want to gain from my career and I am now actively seeking employment in the Human Resources sector. Everyday tasks are so varied and I feel more confident entering the professional world now that I have had a taster of what it is like."
