With the summer season fast approaching, WME's internship programme will be back in action for 2020.
We immerse our selected interns into real and active projects from around the world so that they can fully understand what it takes to be a pioneering engineer. Not only will you be putting your learned key skills to the test, but you will also gain invaluable knowledge from our award winning engineering teams.
Some fundamentals that we look for in our interns:
- Strong drive to succeed and good communication skills
- Team player attitude with the drive to learn and support others
- Excellent written and verbal English communication skills
- A positive, “can-do” attitude and your motivation to learn, contribute and achieve will add value to your application
- Effective presentation skills, ability to cope with changing environments, planning and organisational skills, quality and detail orientation are a plus
Meet Genevieve Graham
