We’re proud of the places our previous interns have gone for their first Communications and Marketing jobs on finishing our internships… Could you follow in their footsteps?

An internship in this exciting and fast-paced field has unexpectedly come up here at the Barber – to start as soon as possible! 

It’s part-time (19.5 hours a week), and you’ll get a chance to experience and often play an integral role in pretty much all areas of communications: digital (social media and website CRM), audience evaluation,  print marketing, media relations, database management – the works. 

The position is open to those who have graduated within the last three years, or are graduating this summer.

Candidates should apply through the Jobs pages of the University of Birmingham website – Click here for the link.

The closing date for applications for this internship is Wednesday 22 February, 2017


Our next round of internships, in Collections, Learning and Engagement, and Communications and Marketing, will commence in September 2017. The recruitment process will begin in April –  watch this space 




We welcome applications for unpaid work experience placements and offer a limited number of placements for school pupils at GCSE and A-Level. We accommodate one student at a time – for a one week placement – three times a year. These placement opportunities are allocated after applicants are invited to attend an interview.
