Get a feel for life as a professional digital engineer, building real-world software. Under the guidance of experienced developers, our interns form teams to create commercial-grade applications. This might be for a client, or a pro bono project or addressing a need within Softwire.
Summer internships last 8-10 weeks, starting in June or July. Let us know what dates would work for you when you apply and we'll do our best to work something out. We recruit and interview all year round, but places do fill up and we strongly recommend you apply in the first term of the academic year. Prior experience is preferable but not essential.
Many of our interns go on to join Softwire permanently, taking up a graduate developer role after completing their studies. We hope you will too, so we reserve our internships for those who haven’t yet accepted employment elsewhere.
Summer internship salary is £28,000 per annum equivalent.
