Are you looking for a summer internship opportunity that will challenge you and enable you to lead from Day 1? Do you want to make an impact on products that consumers around the world can’t live without? Are you curious about the chemistry, technology and development behind some of the world’s most loved brands? 

If so, then our Research & Development Summer Internship is the perfect opportunity for you!

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:

What does it take to come up with some of the world’s most well-known brands? Well, a whole lot of science, to start. Our Scientists at P&G go to work, making and improving the products for billions of consumers who use products like Gillette, Ariel and Pampers every single day. We are talking big innovations, small bets, ground-breaking technology, state-of-the-art labs, micro-scale plants and a team full of inventors to make this happen. During your internship you will be entrusted to work on real projects on some of our most loved brands. 

We offer 12-week summer internships, starting July 2023 and based at our UK Innovation Centres in Reading and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Examples of previous intern projects:

  • Technology Development: Adsorption and desorption of perfumes into zeolite.
  • Process Development: Development of a flexible hand making facility for a hygiene product.
  • Concept Engineering: Design and development of creative new product device.
  • Packaging & Device Development: Impact of bag design parameters on consumer acceptance.
  • Analytical: Chemical characterisation of polymers and adhesives
  • Product Research: Investigate the properties of skin and hair. Suggest potential mechanisms and develop solutions to reduce post shave irritation.

What we look for:

  • Students studying a BSC or MSC in scientific and engineering degrees (preferably in their penultimate year of study).
  • Academic excellence at all stages throughout school and University education with a passion for research and innovation.
  • Technical curiosity, creativity, innovation, initiative, communication, leadership and your collaboration skills.
  • Evidence of passion and achievements, particularly leadership, in academic and/or non- academic activities, short work experience or internships are a plus.

What we offer you:

  • Responsibilities from Day 1 – You will be given specific projects and responsibilities working on real and live business challenges, just like a true P&Ger.
  • Continuous coaching – You will interact with a multi-functional team that could be spread across the globe, as well as work with our external partners. You will work with passionate people and receive both formal training as well as day-to-day mentoring from your manager and coach.
