The GCS Internship is aimed at students from diverse backgrounds in their penultimate or final year of university or completing a degree equivalent.

The Government Communication Service (GCS) is the professional body for UK Civil Service communications professionals, delivering cutting edge work for government. We support the government across a huge spectrum of issues that affect public life. Lasting 6-12 weeks, interns will get an insight in to government communications, and work across a number of communications disciplines.

The internship is based in London, with some placement opportunities available in Nottingham, Bristol, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast and Liverpool.
