Location: Watford and Glasgow

We are looking for six high-calibre undergraduate students to join our Human Resources department on a 12 month placement.

Hilton Work Perks

In addition to a competitive salary you will also receive a range of excellent benefits - probably the best of which is our Go Hilton Team Member Travel Program. This provides you with access to heavily reduced hotel room rates for you, your family & friends. Perfect for the holiday savvy intern!

In our Watford office you will also benefit from a subsidized canteen, free in- house gym and a games room. You will be part of a cohort of approximately 20 Interns who are spread across various departments, and will be involved in our unique intern programme. This includes monthly meetings and assignments which are designed to support your development.

A bit about the job(s)

As an intern, you will be an integral part of the team and will play an active role in our continued success. You will carry out a range of administrative/support activities, as well as having ownership of your own project based initiatives.

You will be asked to select your top three choices of HR Internship in order of preference, so here’s a bit about what each team does;

Talent Acquisition (Recruitment)

The Talent Acquisition Team support our corporate functions and hotels with all stages of recruitment activity across Europe, Middle East and Africa. This is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the many processes involved in hiring for a range of different disciplines. As well as supporting with the delivery of our recruitment processes, you will also be our designated ‘systems expert’ and will provide management information and reports on recruitment activity as and when required. You will support with Recruitment events, such as Conferences and Assessment Centres, and will gain first hand insight into what it takes to build industry leading teams on an international scale.


If numbers are your thing and you like working with data to tell the story behind it, compensation may just be the right field for you! The Compensation team determine how we reward our employees in a way which is competitive and fair, whilst controlling our costs. You will assist the area of Hotel Compensation for Europe with work related to annual activities and various projects. This might include supporting the compensation review process, salary surveys, and/or Total Reward Strategy by analysing, researching and modelling different sources of data. You will make recommendations on process improvements, assist in the development and delivery of presentations and communications to key regional stakeholders, and support with the delivery of the company bonus plans (amongst other things comp related!).


Benefits at Hilton cover a broad spectrum from traditional insurances to health and wellbeing support. Our Europe team works at a strategic level to ensure we are providing a competitive range of benefits and policies that enable us to be an employer of choice. As an Intern, you will support the team with market research, design and implementation aspects of new benefits. You will use your creative skills to produce engaging communications for our Team Members, in addition to looking after our discount and recognition platform, Hilton Marketplace. Furthermore, you will liaise with providers and potential suppliers to source new offers. The benefits internship will give the successful candidate exposure to both project work and day-to-day activities, helping you to build transferable skills for your future career.

HR Consulting (Corporate)

This role is a great opportunity to get insight into the role of a HR Generalist in a matrix environment as it incorporates insight into all aspects of HR, offering a great breadth of experience in just 12 months. Some of your day to day tasks may include supporting with employee relations matters, assisting with HR and business data analysis, creating reports and presentations for internal and external audiences up to and including a senior level, and supporting the HR team with the coordination, communication and promotion of EMEA wide engagement and wellbeing initiatives (e.g. Thrive @ Hilton) for our Corporate Team Members.

Learning & Talent Development

This is a great opportunity to experience both the operational (hotels) and corporate sides of the business. You will support with the administration of several internal development programmes and tracking systems, which includes answering queries and creating online evaluations. You will support the team with event bookings and organisation, and some of the projects you will get the opportunity to take part in are related to Apprenticeships, Social Media and Graduate on boarding.
