HR and Recruitment Internship review

The HR and Recruitment Internship with My English Sister was a wonderful experience. I had a great welcome from the team. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I gained so much experience. From interviewing potential candidates to creating job vacancies on career websites. I learnt a huge amount of information that will most definitely aid me in my future career, both professionally and personally. I had a great time working with everyone on the team, everyone got along so well. I enjoyed both the office work and working with the children. Being with the kids everyday and being a part of their growth was great. Helping them improve their English and seeing their progress was truly heart warming.

  • Flexible hours

Interning with MES

I have just completed a Digital Marketing Internship here at MES and have learnt a lot! I really recommend this internship if you are interested in gaining transferable working skills for your future. The MES team are very supportive, friendly and quick to help if you have any questions, this enables interns to learn a lot rapidly and for their work to notably improve. In terms of the location of the internship, Lyon is the perfect student city and I would recommend it to any students/ young workers!

A once in a lifetime experience with MES

I will never be able to thank MES enough for what I have learned, professionally and personally during this experience. I am so delighted that they are in a position to take on interns and that I can pass on my experience and knowledge to them whilst we continue to work together to grow this wonderful little company right in the heart of Lyon, which is by far (in my very biased opinion), the best city in France! This opportunity is the most ideal way to begin a life in France and learn essential transferrable skills which you will bring into any future job role. If you love working with children, and are intrigued by business and marketing in France, this internship programme is fantastic.
