Career Opportunities

At Pembroke, we are fortunate to have alumni who work in every field of industry…lawyers, artists, management consultants, non-for-profit workers, bankers, national security and defence to name but a few. A number of the Members have agreed to offer advice to students. This is not a service to replace the University of Cambridge’s Career Service, which is incredibly comprehensive, but if you would like further information, please contact the Development Office.

Internships & Placements

An internship is a wonderful way to test the waters, gain experience, and build networks in a particular career field. Internships are also highly valued by employers and therefore a great way to give your CV a boost.

Below is a list of internship opportunities which alumni have promoted and which will grow year on year. If you wish to apply for any of these and would like to receive further information, please contact Sally March in the Development Office, if possible well before the deadline.

A number of these internships are unpaid, other than the reimbursement of expenses. However, the University offers a number of bursaries to help students undertaking unpaid or very low paid work and it is well worth applying to the scheme. More details can be found here:
