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 the 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!

At Hays our greatest asset is our people. You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most experienced people in the industry. As a business, our success is based on our people - we make them experts so they can make it all happen.
Our expertise - Be the best in your field
Hays is the largest and most successful specialist recruitment consultancy and that gives us a clear advantage over our competitors. Our people constantly strive to develop their skills and knowledge. Our consultants are genuine experts in recruiting, for whom recruiting is a passion and a professional skill to be honed over time.
We understand that it is essential to truly understand our clients' businesses to deliver the best results and we actively support our consultants to deepen their knowledge in the industry sectors or professions they recruit in.
It's our expertise that makes us unique.
Our company values determine the attitude, skills and qualities we look for in our people:
Passionate About People:
We are in business because we believe in people. We know the right person in the right role can change lives and transform organisations for the better – making that connection means everything to us. With diligence, empathy and pride, we help organisations secure the talent they need to succeed, and help individuals make the most of every stage of their career.
The best way we can demonstrate commitment to our clients and candidates is through our ambition for them. Their success is our success, so we don’t hold back. We make brave moves, aim high, and work hard every day to deliver the positive impact that achieving success brings to people’s lives.
People come to us because we’re the experts, with over 50 years of experience in recruitment and talent management. We combine this insight with deep specialist knowledge that enables us to place talent across a wide spectrum of industries and sectors all over the world. This professional know-how is indispensable – you simply cannot find, engage and place the right people in the right roles without it.
Beyond understanding people’s skills and experience, there’s a real art to matching them with the right opportunity. This involves taking an inquisitive approach to understand their aspirations and motivations, building the insight required to ensure the ideal fit for any role. And when it comes to understanding the talent needs of organisations, that also takes vision, curiosity and instinct to help our clients achieve their full potential.
We are always seeking new and better ways to make the perfect match between client and candidate. This means being bold, agile and open to ideas – whether it be embracing new technologies, developing our people, or innovating the way we work. Our goal is simple: to stay one step ahead in creating the recruiting experience of tomorrow.
And the foundation of our values is to always:
Do The Right Thing:
Underpinning everything we do is our belief that we must always do the right thing. Doing the right thing enhances and protects our reputation, building trust with all our candidates, clients and other stakeholders. This unites us and makes us stronger.
