About Us

Inspiring Interns connects ambitious graduates with growing businesses


Inspiring Interns & Graduates receives 1,000+ applications a day

Since 2009, we have placed over 7,500 graduates into internships and graduate jobs

Candidates are interviewed, psychometrically tested and video CVs are filmed.

In 2009, a time of crisis, recession and uncertainty, Ben Rosen founded Inspiring Interns to match young job-seekers looking for their first opportunity, with companies looking to hire graduates. He wanted to utilise what he knew was the future of recruiting: video CVs.

The video CV allowed the candidate to showcase themselves beyond what's on paper and employers loved it. As the business grew, we gained OK Magazine and M&C Saatchi as clients and received the backing of the former home secretary; Jacqui Smith.

Today, we've placed over 7,500 candidates, 72% of whom have gone onto permanent positions in the company following their internship. Furthermore, the majority of employers we work with have worked with us repeatedly and many new clients come through referrals, some being the same clients Ben worked with 15 years ago!

In 2018, Inspiring Interns became Inspiring Interns & Graduates, to better reflect the current graduate market. We offer hundreds of graduate jobs and internships at small creative start-ups, to large global businesses.
