Read about Anna’s experience so far: I am currently completing an Industry Placement with the Flood Risk Modelling Team as part of my Biology with Placement Year degree. After just two months I have had so many opportunities to learn about the vast variety of roles available at the EA, and I feel inspired to continue my career with the EA after graduation. The support I have received to build new skills and refine others has been incredible, and the independence to complete my own projects and get involved is fantastic. I am so grateful that I have had this opportunity and would fully recommend it to anyone interested in an Industry Placement.
Summer Diversity Internship Programme
Our internships are 12-week fixed term opportunities in business and communications, or environment and science related roles.
Olu shared their experience with us: My summer diversity internship with the Environment Agency has been nothing short of amazing, to sum it up. Team members and my line manager’s support, the chance to work on significant environmental initiatives, the advice and mentoring I received, and other factors have all impacted me both personally and professionally. The Environment Agency is the ideal starting point for anyone looking to launch a career in environmental management and make a difference in the field of environmental sustainability. Take on the challenges, take the opportunities, and create your imprint on the earth.

The application form questions aim to give you the chance to communicate this to us and get to know a bit more about you personally. You should demonstrate any transferrable or specific skillsets, qualities, past experiences (throughout life, work, education or volunteering), and any other relevant information. Instead of simply telling us, show us: use real life examples of where you’ve used a certain skill or how you’ve practically applied your experience. This is your chance to sell yourself and your abilities!
