There are a number of ways to become a manager within the sector or organisation you would like to work for. Many companies have management graduate training schemes, there are some internships you could apply for and there are many management opportunities advertised as and when the business need requires it.
You could also consider talking to your current manager about gaining management experience within your part time job, which would give you some really useful skills to talk to a future employer about.
There are very few internships with management as the specific focus, although students interested in gaining management experience through internships would certainly pick these skills up in other schemes, especially those that have a focus on leadership.
Search for management internships on CareerHub.
Graduate training schemes
Lots of graduate schemes have a management or leadership focus, especially with large, corporate organisations. Search for full time, graduate management vacancies on CareerHub.
For more graduate schemes see Prospects and employers’ websites. Visit our resource centre to pick up copies of the Times top 100 graduate employers, The Guardian UK 300 and TARGETjobs which list employers with graduate vacancies.
You can also search LSE CareerHub for graduate jobs and find organisations who are coming on to campus to recruit LSE graduates.
Depending on your previous experience it is possible to gain a management role from advertised positions. As well as the websites of employers, think about looking on sector specific websites for the sector you want to work in.
