In the 12-month Legal and Compliance Internship, you'll gain invaluable skills and experience in covering all aspects of legal and compliance from intellectual property (IP) protection to corporate governance and compliance. You could be looking at third party agreements, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory and compliance, trade controls, monitoring changes in law and its impact on the business and providing general legal support.

We will support you throughout the year to ensure you make the best of your GE experience. Your manager will offer coaching and mentoring, and the Company will provide the opportunity to connect with other interns across the UK.
