This programme isn’t about learning how to take a coffee order, it’s about doing hands-on work while learning about and experiencing our unique culture. Working closely with your manager, you’ll kick off a project and see it through to completion – a project that will actually impact the way we do business. At the end of your time with us, you’ll present your project and findings to our business leaders and give your recommendations for how we can best move forward. We give you real responsibility because we know you’re capable of doing real work, and we want you to have the opportunity to showcase your talent and develop your skill set. Bonus: The internship is the fast lane to our rewarding graduate programmes.
