internship Programme

RPI's Internship Programme offers an introduction to students who have an interest in finding out more about how recruitment works in an international environment. Interns spend time during their placement gaining experience in every department within the Company, gaining invaluable insight into how an international company operates and each department’s processes which ensure the company runs smoothly and efficiently.

“Even though I was admittedly a little nervous to work in an industry that I was unfamiliar with, RPI’s welcoming ambience enabled me to seamlessly immerse myself into the world of recruitment. As a soon to-be fresh graduate, I was eager to learn more about the reality of the job market and the recruitment process.”

“I strongly believe the invaluable skills and knowledge I gathered largely come from the firm’s corporate culture.  From the outset I was fully integrated as a team member. The team supported me as I learnt but also trusted me to work independently as I gained greater confidence. Being able to work alongside and learn from experienced recruiters at the top of their game was a real privilege.”
