Gain professional experience while you’re still studying

It’s incredibly motivating to know exactly what you’re studying for. Students who do internships with us work independently on customer projects, applying their newly acquired theoretical knowledge. We offer internships and ongoing positions as student employees to those studying economics, computer science, mathematics and other scientific or technical subjects. You’ll get to know the different departments of one of Europe’s leading integrated financial service providers – and the different kinds of work we do. You’ll also discover your own unique strengths and interests into the bargain. This will make it easier for you to decide on the right career, as well as looking great on your CV and opening doors for you. And if you want to, you can also research and write your dissertation while you’re working with us.

Feedback from student participants has enhanced the transparency and credibility of the Initiative since 2013.

Your new colleagues – in their own words

Placement Student

“What I like best about my student placement is the opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge in practical tasks, as part of a young, dynamic team.”

Lisa Maier

"My time as a placement student was shaped by my helpful, friendly colleagues, who always took time for me and my questions. The enormous trust that was placed in me during my placement, and the tasks that resulted from it, enabled me to gather wide-ranging experience – and this proved to be more useful in my later career than what I learnt during my actual studies."

Daniela Wagner

Bachelor’s / Master’s Thesis

“As part of my Master’s course at the HR Department at Arvato Financial Solutions, I have the option of working on a real-life project instead of just carrying out the usual duties assigned to interns. I can also take on wide-ranging tasks from daily HR routine, like drawing up employment contracts and employee references. The working environment in the department and in general is really friendly. When I think of my time at Arvato Financial Solutions, I think of fun, wellbeing, challenges, and variety. My experience of studying in the HR department convinced me even more that I want to work in the field after graduating.”
