Trussell Trust interns have gone into careers ranging from marketing to accountancy with some becoming Trussell Trust staff members:

'It’s been an invaluable experience; I’ve learnt so much, been given amazing opportunities and had responsibilities whilst receiving great support from the team. I’d recommend the internship to anyone interested in finding out what it’s like to work at the heart of an exciting, innovative and growing charity.'
