Kavya is currently studying Biology and completed our paid 10 week Food Internship with us before she went into her final year at university. She talks about her experience with us below.
"We were given real life projects to work on and were all given responsibility from day one. My project had the potential to make a real difference and that’s what was exciting. I created a plan to reduce waste and improve sales in my area. I had support from my manager every step of the way. The project taught me the importance of collaborating with different stakeholders, communicating clearly with them, and being creative to overcome obstacles.
As an intern you aren’t expected to know all the answers and asking questions is a part of the journey. So ask as many questions as you want. Also, take every opportunity that is thrown at you as this internship is an experience of a lifetime and you’ll develop skills for life."

Joanna completed her paid 10 week Customer Internship with us last year, and last month she returned to our marketing team and started her Customer Graduate programme. She wanted to give us an insight into her experience with us so far.
"I worked as an Insight and Analytics intern where I supported my team to create a competitor research report each week. I learnt so much about the retail industry and how and what we communicate to customers. One of my highlights was taking part in the charity project where we were put into teams and were challenged to raise money, it was great fun to work with the other interns on this.
Earning extra money from my internship before I started my final year was great. It helped me because it meant I was able to work less in my final year which gave me more time to study, plus I also went for a few little trips away to Edinburgh and York which was really fun.”

Olivia is our Buying Assistant for Ladies Jersey, and has just started her second year of her F&F Clothing Apprenticeship. She chats to us about her experience so far.
"I knew I didn’t want to go to university, but knew I wanted to gain work experience within the fashion industry and wanted to earn money doing this. I really loved that this apprenticeship gave you the opportunity to experience both merchandising and buying.
The favourite part of my job are the fit sessions with the models, this is a more technical part of my role. Our models try on the different pieces of clothing and we evaluate how the product looks, fits and feels. It’s great because I get to add value!
My team are really inclusive. We are quite a social team, we go out after work and go to lunch together. My manager and my team are really accommodating to my apprenticeship."

Last summer Tory completed her paid 10 week Customer Internship with us where she had a taster of what is was like to be a marketeer, and now she's back! Last month she started on our Customer Graduate programme and wanted to share her experience with us.
"As part of my internship, I worked in the Brand team working with our Free From and Organic brands. It was a diverse role where I got to work with our design agency to create packaging, visit a variety of shops to understand the market and attend a food show. A highlight was attending customer focus groups to understand what our customers thought about our products.
The internship was great, I learnt so much and gained some real life experience. The money was really helpful as I used it for my travelling after I completed my final year.
I'm looking forward to the rest of my graduate programme as I will get to gain further experience."
