What does the WithSecure Internship Programme look like?

WithSecure's award-winning internship programme is designed to find and develop the next generation of Security Consultants. After receiving the Princess Royal Training Award in 2018 in recognition of the quality of the internship programme, WithSecure has continued to build on the programme's strengths to ensure our interns develop abilities that would enable them to break into the industry.

Interns at WithSecure complete practical training courses in areas including application security, network security, reverse engineering and cryptography to provide them with the core technical skills required by penetration testers around the globe.

Upon completion of the training, interns work side by side with WithSecure's world renowned researchers to investigate a chosen area. Past research topics have included cloud security, the Windows kernel, machine learning applications to security, malware characteristics and detection, and global cyber security strategies. Previously one of WithSecure's interns discovered a 0-day in a popular enterprise application and earned a CVE in the process.

Interns are encouraged to share their research through conferences and publications. Examples of WithSecure's world leading research can be found on WithSecure Labs – https://labs.withsecure.com/.

Who should apply?

Are you a psychologist who has taught themselves some python and is excited about security? Interns at WithSecure often come from a computing background, however, applicants from diverse backgrounds with a strong work-ethic and desire to learn are encouraged to apply.

Internships are generally for those that are either in-between academic years or available for the summer only. Successful candidates will be required to demonstrate technical competence, self-motivation and a passion for security.

You can apply should you be graduating with your degree from 2024 and beyond.

Please note, if you are graduating in 2023, we would ask that you please wait and apply for our next upcoming Consulting Associate Scheme. This will be a full-time opportunity that will include training before becoming a fully fledged Associate Security Consultant. This can be applied for at the following link - https://uk.linkedin.com/jobs/v....

When is it?

Internships are paid, 10 weeks long and take place over the summer period. The next programme will begin on Monday 26th June 2023 primarily at our London office, with some training courses being held in our Basingstoke office.
