MARS INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE

GET A REAL FLAVOUR OF OUR BUSINESS

One of the best ways to get a feel for our business – and whether you might want to build a long-term career with us – is to join us for a placement or internship. With us, that doesn’t just mean shadowing or doing a few admin tasks. We’ll trust you to lead your own projects and give you real responsibility for their delivery. Whether that means you join the marketing team for one of our billion-dollar brands or you help develop a new range of SNICKERS, the possibilities here really are limitless. You’ll be able to make your time with us mean much, much more and, if everything goes well, there’s every chance it could take you on to a permanent role at Mars after you have completed your studies.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We have a work hard, play hard culture and, because we’re such a people-focused business, we’re looking for driven and collaborative people who can influence and get things done at pace. Not only will you be great at coming up with new ideas, you’ll have the confidence to share them with the business. To get the most out of these opportunities, you’ll also need to be curious and keen to learn. Having great self-awareness and a willingness to learn from your mistakes will be key to your success.

WHAT YOU’LL GET IN RETURN

You’ll have a one-day induction to meet the rest of your cohort and start to find out about the magic of working at Mars. No matter where you work, you’ll be part of a team but you’ll have the chance to connect with all sorts of people across our business – in fact, we’ll encourage you to do exactly that. The more people you meet and get to know, the more you’ll learn and the more you’ll be able to contribute. At the same time, you’ll have a strong support network around you. You’ll be joining a community of other placement students and interns, and you’ll be supported by a buddy, your line manager and your team. You’ll also work with your line manager on a Personal Development Plan throughout your time with us to provide you with focused support both functionally and personally.
