One of the best ways to get a feel for our business – and decide whether you might want to build a long-term career with us – is to join us for an internship. An internship placement with us doesn’t just mean shadowing or doing a few admin tasks. We’ll trust you to lead your own projects and give you responsibility for their delivery, giving you meaningful real-world experience from day one.
Programme Overview Our Mars Internship Experience gives invaluable work experience and opportunities for personal growth – your chance to test your skills and explore a range of potential future career paths. Placements vary from 3 to 12 months (depending on the countries) and can be combined with your studies. You’ll have a line manager and buddy plus you’ll be able to connect with our community of interns.
What you'll do
The possibilities are limitless on the Mars Internship Experience. Whether you join the marketing team for one of our billion-dollar brands or help develop a new range of Snickers, you'll be working on meaningful business projects with big responsibility.
If all goes well during your time with us, our Internship Experience can also lead to our Graduates Traineeships across various functions within our business.
Who are we looking for
You'll be currently studying and looking to gain some work experience to help jump-start your career once you finish.
You'll be driven and collaborative with the ability to influence and get things done at pace. Having a natural curiosity and desire to learn will help you get the most out of your time with us. If you’ve got the drive to make a real impact, this is the experience for you.
What are the benefits
You will have a competitive salary. There are endless opportunities to develop yourself during your placement. You can expect to manage your own project, have great line manager support and the added bonus of dogs in the office!
Our Internship Experiences offer a route into entry-level roles in the business and provide valuable learnings along the way.

You can join in Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Russia and the United states of America. If we aren’t currently running our internship programme in your country of preference, sign up to our talent community for the latest Mars career opportunities.

Meet Adam"I was surprised by how much flexibility Mars offers me, since I am a student working part time, and how much I was valued: From start I was given real responsibilities in projects which aren't usually given to interns."

Meet Roy“During my internship the focus on my personal development is something that made me feel I was more than just an intern. Still today, this really comes to life through my 1:1 conversations with my line manager about where I want to go and how I’m going to get there from a development perspective and this is without a doubt one of the reasons I still love working at Mars today."
