Office internships

Work experience for refugees in Scotland

Refugee intern volunteering with the Refugee Survival Trust

For many refugees, getting your first job in a new country can be a challenge – employers may be more reluctant to employ you if they don’t recognise your qualifications or work experience or are not able to contact your previous employers for a reference. Similarly, the prospect of working in a different office culture may be daunting.

We offer refugees the opportunity to volunteer with us during a short internship in our office. Each internship is  tailored to the needs and interests of the individual, and we support you to learn new skills and carry out a project of your own.

We always learn a lot from our interns, and greatly value the contributions you make to our work.

At the end of the internship, we give a certificate outlining all of the amazing work that you have done for us. We can also offer to give you professional references when you apply for your next position.
