Marketing & Insurance Internships
An internship within our marketing or insurance team will give you valuable work experience and the opportunity to really make your mark. We do not look for interns to make tea and organise paperclips, you will be given the chance to really get involved in projects. Schuyler interned with us in 2011 and wrote this fab article on online marketing on a shoestring.
You could be writing copy for our website, helping to manage social media campaigns, analysing data or meeting our insurers. Whatever you choose to be involved with, your contribution will be valued.

Internships in the Northampton office
This year we've taken on two students as interns in our Northampton office. Brother and sister Toby and Charlotte Fordyce were mentored by Simply Business for the Rise To Challenge. We were so impressed with their drive and business-sense that we offered Toby an internship in the operations team, and Charlotte an HR internship. If you're interested in gaining HR experience, click here to read Charlotte's account of her time with us. If operations is something you're interested in exploring, read what Toby had to say here.
