Following the exceptional performance, ongoing growth and market dominance of Hays, we are looking for a talented and driven university student to partake in our established Internship Program. Throughout your internship at Hays you will learn about what a true recruiting expert does, and prepare yourself for a career in recruitment with one of the most successful recruitment companies in the world. You will work closely with one of our expert consultants, supporting them in real practical work and adding value to their business.
To qualify for this opportunity, you will need to demonstrate a passion for recruiting and sales. You will have already accomplished excellent academic records, but also have demonstrated leadership and pro-activeness in extracurricular activities. You will be someone who is ambitious in your career goals, and want to exceed expectations to develop your own knowledge and skills. We are interested in fresh graduates or students in their final year of studies.
The internship will provide you with an in-depth understanding of what a career in recruitment looks like, and an opportunity for you to demonstrate your potential to become a recruiting expert with Hays. You will learn and contribute to real-life recruitment cases; provide support in the areas of candidate attraction and sourcing, as well as partake in informal and formal intern training.
My internship here at Hays has been nothing short of amazing. Far from the typical menial and routine administrative tasks in other internships, simply no days are the same here at Hays. During my 2 months of internship, I had full exposure of what recruitment truly is. This is by far, without a doubt, the most rewarding internship experience I have had thus far!
I really appreciate that I was treated as a full-time employee, in which I was given the same respect, training and support as any other full-timers. The dynamic and fast-paced environment helps push you out of your comfort zone. You have full autonomy and ownership of your work, where you have the chance to maximise your full potential. Truth be told, work here is hectic and challenging. Nonetheless, it is reflected in the soft skills learnt and self-development you will achieve, which is unrivalled in any other typical internships. Also, the energetic and passionate people here, alongside the work-hard play-hard culture, has made my internship here most enjoyable and rewarding.
If you are looking for a challenging and fast-paced working environment where you can make a difference, Hays is the place to be!
