Internship Programme

Our 10-week summer internships in London allow you the opportunity to explore our business and identify your talents to pursue what you’re passionate about. That’s exactly what the SEFE Marketing & Trading internship programme is designed to do. Following a successful internship, you may even have the opportunity to be hired on to one of our graduate schemes in 2025, without the need for a further interview. You will be assessed on a final presentation, as well as your project work.

Over the course of the summer, you’ll work across one of our business areas, based in our offices in central London, which include Trading, Finance, IT, HR, Internal Audit and Procurement, so you can get to know different people, roles and responsibilities at SEFE Marketing & Trading. Along the way, you’ll have the support you need to fully embrace what it’s like working in a positive, collaborative and fully inclusive working environment.

Please note you must have the right to work in the UK for the duration of the internship. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
