We are excited to offer a range of internships at Belfast Bible College to give graduates an opportunity to gain skills and experience to help with their vocational development.
What type of internship could you apply for? Here are a few options…
The Community Life Intern/Student Worker works alongside the Community Life Facilitator in organising, promoting and developing the community aspects of the College - which currently include regular worship services, mission sessions and small groups for staff and students. There will be opportunity to be involved in any or all of these, depending on your gifts and interests.
In addition you will assist with Community Life administration. The position would be best suited to a theology graduate who is seeking experience of working in a Christian College community, supporting students in their personal and spiritual development, practical training and College relationships. You’ll need good administrative skills, a love for young people and the ability to work as part of a team.
We are looking for graduates who have skills in any area of communications and want the opportunity to gain workplace 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 learn how to take projects from concepts through to distribution.
If you are a filmmaker or videographer, 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. Tell 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 are 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.

As the supervisor you’ll be allocated accommodation within the hostels & as such will be an important part of the College’s residential community.
You’ll need a mature attitude and the ability to demonstrate a genuine warmth and interest in the students. You should also be an effective and harmonious individual, willing to be part of a hardworking team with a mature Christian faith.
This is a great opportunity to develop key skills in helping to run the Operations side of a Christian organisation. This is a great role for people who are practially minded and enjoy organisation and logisitics.
