Management Internship Program
The Sedgwick County Management Intern Program offers a one-year opportunity to explore different administrative career fields, gain invaluable insight into local government, and procure future leadership positions. The goal of the program is to draw and preserve highly motivated and creative individuals from diverse social and cultural backgrounds to local government.
Management Interns study administrative systems, policies and practices, and will be given definite work assignments involving meaningful participation in a wide variety of issues facing the Sedgwick County metropolitan area. They are given in-depth experience with all facets of County government including, but not limited to, public finance, public health, public safety, public works, human resources, and other County functions. Interns attend County Commission meetings, relevant project meetings, and local and regional conferences. They work out of the Sedgwick County Manager's Office and are assigned projects at the direction of the County Manager and Assistant County Manager.
Applicants should be complete or nearly complete with their coursework. Sedgwick County will be hiring multiple interns.
