DCMS takes part in the Summer Diversity Internship Programme which is led by Cabinet Office. In the last three years, DCMS has taken five graduate/postgraduate interns (per year) for a period of six to eight weeks. They were each paid equivalent of a grade C/EO post and worked an average of 36 hours per week across the Department. Each candidate sent a CV which outlined their interests and as a Department, sought to match each intern with a particular area of interest in the Department. All the interns who took part in the programme completed the agreed time with us.
