Are you passionate about consumer insights? Would you like to use your scientific and analytical skills to enable product designs that your consumer will love? Then we have the perfect opportunity for you!

Consumer Insights Scientists work as master integrators, making non-obvious connections across consumer, technical and business realms, and translating these connections into robust product propositions and strategies. They provide a unique advantage to P&G by integrating in-depth consumer understanding with product technology in a single role. 

Internships at P&G UK

Interns from across our functions talk about the level of responsibility, the projects they got to work on and their personal highlights.

What you can expect

We are looking to recruit candidates for 12-month internship placements starting in summer 2022. We offer internships at our UK Innovation Centres in Reading and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

During your internship, you will play a key role in generating consumer insights and being a champion for the consumer and their needs, inspiring your multi-functional R&D partners: Designers, Engineers, Scientists & Technologists, to collaboratively translate those insights into irresistible product experiences that delight the consumer. 

Some examples of past Consumer Insights internship projects

  • Investigate the properties of skin and hair. Suggest potential mechanisms and develop solutions to reduce post shave irritation
  • Identify connections between razor product technology and consumer insights and translate those connections into winning product proposals. Prototype new product ideas and iteratively learn through explicit, focused learning cycles and consumer studies to create irresistible products
  • Assess and understand consumer, technology, market, online, competitive and IP landscape to influence the definition of category innovation strategies and new opportunity spaces
