Back for its fifth edition IEUK 2024 is your chance to fast track your career. Get real-world experience to add to your CV as well as valuable knowledge and networking opportunities with top employers in a range of industries. If you're not able to make the live experience, you want to participate in more than one stream, or you're under 18, On Demand is for you.

How does IEUK On Demand work?

The on demand experience kicks off on 1 July 2024 after the live experiences end. You'll be emailed a work pack with links to the sessions and project work. You’ll have until 12th July to complete everything in your own time and submit the project work. 

By completing the sessions and submitting the work sample, you'll receive the same certificate as those who completed the live experience and you can add this to your CV. The only thing you miss out on is the networking, which is limited to the live experience.

Internship Experience UK On-Demand is available for all four streams being offered this year: 

  • Business, Operations & Marketing
  • Commercial Law
  • Finance, Professional Services & Consulting
  • Technology

What's new for 2024?

More focused

2024 has four streams, to give you a more indepth overview of the sectors and access to more employers and content within each stream. 

Bespoke panels

Listen to bespoke panels designed to give you a unique perspective of the world of work from relatable firm representatives. This will help you gain insights into the industry and tips on how you can navigate your early career successfully.

Learn from Bright Network Alums

Frequently asked questions

I've done IEUK before - is this year the same? 

Each year's experience is completely unique, so if you did the experience last year or the year before, we recommend taking part again. All the sessions will be different, more employers are joining and the work samples are brand new. Plus, there are extra features to help you gain more from the experience. 

What is permanent right to work? 

We are not positioned to advise regarding sponsorship or visas. Please visit Citizen's advice or UK government website.
