Well-researched blog post about a recent KC HR team position, and why it’s not an internship.
King’s College London are currently recruiting “Recruitment Interns”. These internships in the university’s Human Resources Department last for 12 weeks, and are full time (5 days a week, 9am to 5pm). The internships are unpaid, with KCL only offering travel expenses. These are the exactly the same conditions as those for people on the workfare scheme.…the interns would be expected to fulfill pretty much all of the roles that would be expected of a paid administrative assistant in any human resources department in any higher education institution…whoever is to apply successfully for these positions must already have the skills necessary to work as an administrator in human resources.
