Student opportunities at the EMCRC

Here at the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre, we support and help businesses become more cyber secure. We draw on our universities to help us do this by developing their students and offering them opportunities to gain valuable work experience and hands on cyber security services.

So far this year, we have spoken to a lot of students about their career opportunities within the cyber security industry and how the EMCRC can potentially help with that all-important route in.

With that in mind, for any students who have joined our social media community recently - either on the back of talking to us at the University of Derby Talent Fair, or one of the Step Into Cyber events, or just by finding us online - here’s a reminder about the pathways we have available...

Cyber PATH – Cyber PATH is an elite talent pipeline for the next generation of specialists in cyber resilience; it's an excellent way for students to engage in the commercial aspects of the sector and gain vital experience whilst helping SMEs with their cyber resilience. Details can be found here: Cyber PATH - National CRC Group. We don’t expect to be recruiting again in the East Midlands again until late 2024/early 2025. Watch this space!

Volunteering – there may be options for students to volunteer with us, possibly working on our Community Outreach campaign (for an example of what that entails see here: EMCRC partners with Derbyshire Constabulary for community campaign) as it rolls out again this year. Details are yet to be confirmed; keep an eye on our social channels and on our website. If you’d like to register your interest in becoming a volunteer at the EMCRC, you can also email explaining that you are interested in volunteering. We can then add you to a shortlist and inform you when the application process begins. All our volunteers must undergo DBS checks.

Internships (University of Derby students only currently) – There are opportunities for 6-month internships, part-funded by the University of Derby. Please speak to your careers advisor on campus, or check out the Careers and Employment Service page on your intranet.
