Internships & apprenticeship
More than 2,700 interns completed an internship at L’Oréal in 2007. As Geoff Skingsley, L’Oréal’s Executive Vice-President of Human Resources, puts it: "We generate our own leaders – which means that we need to get them young, when they’re hungry for experience, and prepare them for the role." If you’re interested, come and join us!
Our internships, in France and internationally, are open to university, business school or engineering students. They last from 3 months to one year and are offered throughout the year in our various divisions (Research, Operations, Finance, Information Systems, Marketing, Sales, Communications, Human Resources).
Express your personality
We’re looking for more than technical expertise and qualifications; we’re looking for talented young people who can express their wide-ranging personal attributes as they take part in challenging, dynamic projects and missions.
Our group’s rich cultural diversity is the secret of its success. We’re looking for students with a diverse range of profiles, nationalities and experiences. More important than anything, however, is your enthusiasm, your creativity, your ambition and your ability to transform your passion into success. Your talent … for creating beauty.
A learning experience
Undertaking an internship at L’Oréal is the first stage in learning a profession, it’s an opportunity to work as part of a team and to experience the culture of our group. It’s also an opportunity to show what you can do – we’re on the look-out for talents we can employ in the future. Last year more than 55% of our young managers (without previous experience) recruited in France had previously completed an internship at L’Oreal. Globally, 28% of the graduates we recruit are former interns.
Whatever the outcome of your internship, you will have gained an experience that will give you a head start in your professional life. To assist your integration within L’Oreal, within your team and with your internship supervisor, we offer:
You can apply online – speculatively, or in response to an internship advertisement. Our recruitment team will look at your application and if our opportunities match your profile and ambitions we’ll contact you to arrange a meeting.
