Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service are excited to be partnering with the University of Leicester to recruit three summer interns into the Service.

This forms part of the University of Leicesters’ Citizens of Change programme in which undergraduate students have the opportunity to apply for a range of summer internships with organisations across Leicestershire.

Interns will join our Corporate Communications and HR departments to work on a variety of exciting projects looking at educational campaigns, recruitment drives, design work, and website projects.

Chief Fire and Rescue Officer, Callum Faint, said: “It’s great to continue our partnership work with the University of Leicester and we are thrilled to be able to offer three new internships for undergraduate students.

“This is an exciting opportunity and interns will be able to gain a valuable insight into the work we do here at Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service.”

We are looking forward to welcoming the successful students as they will join us for six weeks starting in June.

If you are a University of Leicester undergraduate student or know someone who  is, direct them to the MyCareers platform to find out more and apply! The deadline for applications is Friday 12 May.
