A word from the current intern

This 6 month internship is well suited to British university students in their 3rd year undertaking a ‘Year Abroad’. The language spoken in the office is French, therefore a good level is required to do the job well and would be best suited to a French student. This provides a great opportunity to improve your French skills, especially with the company’s social events such as monthly office drinks and lunches. The majority of the people in the office can speak English, so they can help you if you feel a bit rusty at the beginning.
Almost all tasks are done by computer and the company also uses various online tools to perform them, as such the candidate should have a decent level of computer skills. Though they are not overly technical tasks, it is necessary to be able to get to grips with the online tools quickly so as to not waste time when performing tasks.

Given the current climate, it is important that we start the process of selection earlier than normal. Brexit means that a visa is now required for British nationals who wish to enter France for a period of 6 month to work. Obtaining a visa requires specific documentation including an internship agreement signed by the DIRECCTE in France whose processing time can be 1-2 months. It is very important to be able to organise all relevant documentation in good time so that you can start working in Paris on the agreed date. This will mean that you will have an ‘overlap week’ with the current intern who will help you with the onboarding process and be able to answer any questions you have in your first week.
