Have you considered an internship as a recruiting expert at Hays?
Our award-winning intern programme will give you a unique insight into the world of work and hands-on experience of life in business.

As a result you'll be equipped with the skills you'll need to succeed once you finish university, and many of our interns return to Hays after completing their studies.
Why choose an internship in recruitment?
Recruitment is a fantastic career choice - it's fast-paced and dynamic, every day you'll make a lasting impact. As a Recruiter, you manage your own business and work in a commercial and entrepreneurial environment. You source candidates, win business and match the right candidate to the right job.
It's hard work as you have to hit sales and activity targets (and we have high expectations at Hays) but a career in recruitment is extremely rewarding - you transform lives and business, you can earn great commission and you'll enjoy regular career progression.
