The Very Group has launched an internship programme to find suitable interns to join the business this autumn.

The British online retailer, which owns Very, Littlewoods and Shop Direct, has offered 10 placement opportunities in tech and data, marketing, financial services and fashion design for undergraduates, each lasting 10 months.

The majority will be based at The Very Group’s Liverpool head office in Liverpool, while the fashion design role will be based in London.

The company said each intern will have a mentor focused on their personal development. They will face “exciting” projects and establish a wide network of connections during the period.

Since the scheme first launched in 2015, 50 undergraduates have completed internships with The Very Group, which operates Very.co.uk.

In the past year, seven former interns accepted permanent graduate roles with the business in tech and data, retail and financial services, while others have secured roles at Boohoo and JD Sports.

“Internships provide valuable on-the-job experience and are a great way develop employability skills and stand out when entering the job market,” The Very Group chief people officer Sarah Willett said.

“We’re so proud of what our interns over the last five years have gone on to achieve and I can’t wait to welcome our next generation this autumn.”
