The Academy offers:

  • Work placements
  • Graduate internships
  • Grants of up to £1,500 towards the cost of studying

Work Placements

Nehemiah works in partnership with local organisations, such as universities, schools and community groups, to provide work experience placements throughout the year on a rolling programme – usually on a 2-weekly basis.

Through the Academy work placements, you can learn about every aspect of running a successful housing association – from finance and support services through to housing administration.

Your gained experience will look good on your CV and enhance your skills set, improving your future career prospects as a result.

Graduate Internships

Nehemiah works closely with local education organisations to provide a number of one or two-year graduate internships.

Throughout the recruitment process, we also provide benefits to the shortlisted candidates, such as CV reviews and teaching key skills that employers look for in potential employees.


Nehemiah’s Educational Support Programme offers grants to help with the cost of graduate internships.

Grants are offered to any one individual to contribute to the cost of the majority of courses or a grant is allocated to a local community group.

Grants can be put towards the cost of studying, including:

  • Registration fees
  • Tuition fees
  • Exam fees
  • Study resources
  • Community educational initiative

There is a maximum of £1,500 grant offered in any one year. More information on the criteria and how to apply for a grant can be found by emailing academy@nehemiah.co.uk.
