Business Diversity

We want people from diverse backgrounds at every level of our business, so we’ve launched our Business Diversity internship to help us attract talent to our business that we can nurture and grow. This 10-week paid programme over the summer will give you real-life experience in a key area of our business, building valuable skills to support your future career. You'll be supporting a key project, with the potential to positively affect the lives of millions of customers, as well as colleagues, communities and our planet!

 

There are lots of exciting projects and areas across our business which you could be placed in.  This year, one of our interns has been working in our Distribution Support Office, helping us to meet our climate change targets by supporting the roll-out of electric delivery vans.  Whilst another has been helping us take the lead on tackling childhood obesity, supporting the team to make sure our store ranges are in line with government guidelines.  You can find out a bit more about the different areas across our business here.

 

A successful internship with us can guarantee your place on our Business Graduate Programme when you graduate - before you’ve even started your final year of study!

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for self-motivated and curious undergraduates, who can work collaboratively to deliver a project in our business. You don’t need previous work experience to apply. You need to be in your penultimate year of study and meet at least one of the following:
• Ethnic minority background
• Low socioeconomic background
• Consider yourself to have a disability or long-term health condition
• Identify as LGBTQ+

Working at our Welwyn Garden City campus

Our leafy, green campus is just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City with its many shops, restaurants, pubs and sports facilities. Close to the A1, and with frequent trains running to Finsbury Park in just 20 minutes (free shuttle buses take you between the station and office), the campus is well connected to the surrounding area.

On campus you’ll find subsidised restaurants and coffee shops, as well as a Tesco Express to pick up your lunch or last-minute essentials. You can join the on-site Nuffield Health gym, which has state-of-the-art fitness equipment, two studios for group classes, plus treatment rooms (membership costs £23.50 per month).
