EMI Music offer a range of paid, 6 month internships in various departments. They are an excellent opportunity to combine your relevant skills with your love of music, in a workplace where being proactive is rewarded. You will gain insight into the music industry and learn how a major record label operates. We are unable to guarantee a job at EMI Music at the end of the internship, but many of our previous interns have secured a role within the company or through contacts they have made during the internship.
Internships are mostly based in High Street Kensington, London, and you will receive a salary of £6,500 over the 6 month period. Unless stated otherwise, they are for a period of 6 months on a full time basis, Monday to Friday.
Interns can also take part in our innovative Creative Channels programme. You can find out more about this on the apprenticeship page.
There are currently no internship opportunities available. Please keep checking back for updates.
To apply please send your CV and covering letter to UKinternships@emimusic.com stating the title of the internship in the subject bar. We regret that, due to the large volume, we are unable to respond to all emails. Emails from agencies will not be read.

I’ve also enjoyed being part of a dynamic department which is always busy and gave me a higher degree of responsibility than I expected.I have met plenty of friendly colleagues in my department and elsewhere, most of whom have valuable advice and connections. I have learned more about the music industry and how it will develop in the coming years, and I have learned what kind of careers would suit my particular skills, knowledge and interests.” Strategy and Development intern
