The Summer Internship

During the 8 week summer internship you will gain an invaluable insight into our business, whilst developing your own skills and capabilities. Following a two day company induction, you will be working day to day as a fully integrated team member and also working as part of an intern group to address a ‘live’ business challenge. 
The summer intern cohort also attend weekly ‘Lunch & Learn’ sessions to discover more about the breadth of our business and career opportunities. Interns are also encouraged to meet our most senior leadership and are equipped from the outset with personal impact training. 

Your time on the summer internship is supported by a dedicated line manager, team buddy, business mentor and HR support. Clear objectives are set at the outset, with developmental conversations and one to one meetings provided on a weekly basis. 

The summer internship programme also provides some memorable social and community events, ensuring you build strong relationships with your peers and that we contribute positively within the local community.

If you are successful on the summer internship, we aim to offer you a position on the 2019 Graduate Programme intake.

There really is no better way to start your career at GVC!

The Product Function

Through working in the Product function you will learn how data is at the heart of every new idea, whether it is identifying ways to solve existing business problems or proposing new innovations.

As a Product intern you may find yourself working with the Innovation Team, responsible for tracking emerging technological trends and designing new features that customers will value - whether in sportsbook, gaming or core aspects of the digital suite.

You will may also spend time working in the Ladbrokes Digital Sportsbook product team. The team is responsible for all of Ladbrokes' online products, including the website, tablet, IOS and Android Apps and developing the features, look and feel and how they perform in terms of customer usage. 

On the retail front, you might find yourself supporting the transformation of our shop estate into high tech hubs, attracting and retaining a new customer profile.

Wherever you are placed, no two days will be the same and you will continually be challenged within a fast paced and vibrant environment.

Eligibility Requirements

The Summer Internship is aimed at Penultimate Year Undergraduates and therefore you must be Graduating in 2020 to be eligible for this programme. 
You are only able to submit one Summer Internship application. 

If you have applied to multiple streams, your first application will be taken as default and all other applications rejected.
