9 month internships working with students who are studying Theology, opportunities to serve alongside experienced staff team, gaining valuable skills and opportunities to develop gifts and abilities.

We have 3 types of Internship currently available:

Apply
 

Student Worker Internship:

Do you have a heart to work with students, helping them to understand their faith and apply it to the real world?

Do you want to see students grow in their understanding of God through worship, prayer, Bible study and outreach?

Are you interested in learning about pastoral care and helping people through difficult situations?

We are looking for graduates who are interested in investing in the spiritual development of students who are studying at the College; helping the staff team to provide a rich experience outside of the classroom so that students have space to develop their relationship with God through worship, small groups and prayer. Our interns help to provide opportunities for students to develop a servant heart through our campus service programme.

This is an amazing opportunity to learn valuable practical, organisational and management skills. You will learn how to plan and communicate events and discover how to create a culture of service, prayer and worship within a Christian community. This is a great opportunity to learn from experienced leaders and teachers and help to shape and influence the lives of future ministry leaders.

 

Communications Internship:

Are you a story teller? Can you take a picture, or make a video that reveals hidden depths? Are you a writer who lives to capture the narratives around you? Are you a designer that wants to express what God is doing in the world?

We are looking for people who have skills in any area of communications and want the opportunity to gain experience in communicating to a wide Christian audience from a professional communications office. Using social media, email, printed material, website and video platforms this is a great way to gain a range of experience.

If you’re a film maker you could be involved in production of videos; both taking part in larger projects and the opportunity to direct, shoot and edit your own short films. Telling stories about how God is using our current and former students. Also helping to produce short videos that help explain theology in creative ways.

If you’re a designer then we would love to give you opportunities to learn how to design and create graphics and publication which share the life of the College, promote courses, communicate theology in clear and interesting ways.

If you’re a writer or photographer then spend time observing and creating both the day to day life of the College but also stories about what God is doing across the Church in Northern Ireland.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work as part of a creative team, to use your creative skills to serve God, learn how to use them in a professional context and to support and encourage the wider church through quality content. 
 

Events, Facilities & Hospitality Internship:

Do you love to host people and to help them have a warm welcome? Do you want to gain experience planning & running events? To learn how to run conferences and manage accommodation? 
New for this year we are offering the chance to gain experience in helping to run a Christian conference venue and develop the day to day skills in running a campus facility. 
 
You will have the opportunity to use your business management and organisational skills to help manage facilities & to envision, plan and facilitate a wide range of events at the College. You’ll learn how to work with budgets, schedules, vendors & clients, all within a Christian, faith based context & you’ll gain experience across a wide range of areas including:
 
Events often take place at evenings and weekends and can run over a few hours on a given day or over a few days. This means flexibility with working hours so you won’t be restricted to fixed working hours or patterns that could interrupt your studies or other commitments.  You’ll be working as part of a team and, depending on the type of task or event, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and interact with members from the local Church community & faith based charity sector.  You’ll also need to be willing to embrace the overall ethos of the College and work within a Christian community where expressions of faith are central to the workplace.
