Role & Department Overview

We are also interested in applicants with experience in search engine optimisation (SEO), pay per click (PPC) and video marketing, although these skills will not be necessary for all roles. Internships are open to undergraduates, graduates and postgraduates.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and successful individuals will be allocated to client organisations as they become available, although without a firm guarantee of a role.

This internship is part of the EnginE project which is part funded by the European Social Fund. For further information on the project please click here: www.lancaster.ac.uk/engine 

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.

Start date: July - flexible
