The Mayor’s Entrepreneur Team are offering up to 30-part time paid internships from November 2021 that will last for 6 months. These internship roles are an opportunity for motivated individuals to gain work-based skills in a local government environment.

You will be a current student at a London based university and will be continuing your studies in October 2021.  You will be an excellent communicator.

Working alongside your studies as part of a small but dynamic team you will help to run the Mayor’s Entrepreneur – a London-wide competition for students. You will assist in promoting the competition to students and staff at London’s Higher and Further Education institutions through virtual meetings, workshops, social media and other verbal and written methods.  There will be some COVID secure, in-person events, though this will depend on government advice closer to the time.

The role will require experience of Microsoft Office and good planning and organising abilities.  An interest in entrepreneurship and/or sustainability would be an advantage but is not essential.
