Internships

Responsibility and exciting projects from day one.

Internships

During your internship you will receive a practical insight into our numerous technical and commercial departments. You will also take on some key responsibilities: from the very beginning, we will give you concrete tasks (and by that we definitely do not mean making coffee or doing photocopies) and expect you to process small projects independently. Even as an intern, you can make a difference to our company.

The team that you will be joining on your first day will take you seriously and implement any good ideas that you may have. As a result, your own experiences will allow you to get to know the business processes of a global company.

The ideal conditions for an internship at GF

  • Good academic performance (ideally, you should have already completed the first semester of your studies)
  • Ambition and initiative
  • Dedication and a conscientious attitude
  • Team spirit and strong communication skills
  • Written and spoken English language skills
  • Ability to work confidently with MS Office

An internship with us generally lasts for six months but we can also agree shorter or longer periods.
