The Unternship is our progressive internship designed to attract the brightest, boldest new talent in the UK from all backgrounds and walks of life. Experience, adventure, creativity, our unconventional Unternship programme has it all. You can expect an excellent foundation in communications at Golin’s London HQ, a bursary towards an adventure that drives fresh thinking and a package that supports London living – including our unique Golin B&B.

If you have a passion for PR there really is nothing to hold you back, whatever your background, from starting a brilliant career in communications as a Golin Untern.

The Details


Each intern can break free from the office and gain valuable life experience that will play into the internship. We’re offering a £500 bursary to each Untern towards an activity or adventure that will fuel creativity and fresh thinking. It could be that one thing you’d love to do or try, a place you’d love to visit (within budget) or something that pushes you out of your comfort zone.


Expect a superb foundation in communications over six months within one of four practice areas – corporate, consumer, social and technology. Our interns are set clear objectives, a structured training programme and extensive on-the-job learning. Interns will leave with valuable experience on well-known clients, a great network of fellow interns and possibly a permanent role.


We know that bright people come from different places and have experienced different things, so we’re keen to hire interns from a diverse range of backgrounds. As such, you don’t need a degree to apply for our internship and there’s no age limit. We do ask for your CV, but more importantly we want you to create a video or press release that grabs our attention.

Golin B&B

Golin B&B makes our London-based internship more accessible to all, no matter where you live or your background. We don’t want great interns put off applying due to the high cost of living in London, so all interns receive the London Living Wage and can take advantage of Golin B&B – relocation help, one month of accommodation costs followed by a 0% loan for a deposit and rent.

How to apply

The Unternship is our internship scheme for those looking to make their first steps in a progressive public relations agency.  Our interns will receive a London Living Wage salary of £20,000, along with a £500 bursary for an unlikely adventure, access to Golin B&B and other great benefits, such as Friday breakfast and great work socials. You MUST have the right to work in the UK and be available for a six month scheme from Monday 22nd April 2019.


We’d like you to create a one-minute video or one-page press release to grab our attention and ‘sell’ yourself. Tell us about you, why you’d be a great Untern, what makes you tick and what ticks you off! Remember your audience. Think about what we want to hear, what we need to know? What is the key message you want to convey that will bag you a Golin Unternship? Good luck!

To apply, please email your CV and creative task to recruitment@golin.com. Look at the roles in the section below and highlight if you have any preferences. The interview process will be held in the week commencing 8th April and the Unternship start date will be Tuesday 7th May.
