Ready to fuel the success of globally renowned brands like Gillette, Pampers, Head & Shoulders and Oral-B? Do you want to be part of the innovation and technological advancement of products used every day by millions of the world’s consumers? Want to work for a company consistently recognised as one of the UK’s leading graduate employers?

Then apply for an internship in Gillette’s Process & Engineering (P&E) department at Procter & Gamble (P&G), the bridge between Design and Manufacture. We are a group who always look for opportunities - whether that's in researching and testing a new technology; improving a piece of equipment's efficiency; or even making a process more sustainable to help reach the company's 2030 and 2040 Sustainability Goals.

We believe that there is always an opportunity to grow and develop. If you were to join our team, you would be given responsibility from Day 1 to collaborate with vendors to design, develop and deliver equipment to our global partners, and be part of Design Reviews to expand initial concepts into our world-renowned products and packs.

What to expect

We offer 3 to 6 month internship placements either as an Electrical Engineer or Data Analytics intern. During your internship you will get a first-hand experience of what a career in P&E with P&G involves, and if it is right for you.

You will be working on live business projects and expected to dive straight in and take the lead. Previous Electrical Engineer internship projects have covered topics such as Robot pick-and-place calibration and HMI & PLC coding. Previous Data Analytics internships have encompassed subjects like Equipment Asset Tracking via Power BI and Capability Training via PowerApps.

Sounds challenging? Don’t worry – we don’t expect you to know how to do this, we can teach you. Each intern receives a customized learning plan to ensure they get the right levels of coaching, mentoring and training as they deliver their work. If you are looking for an exciting and challenging experience, have a passion for winning, strong leadership credentials and an interest in pursuing a career at P&G – this internship is for you!

This internship is available in our Innovation Centre in Reading.
