Internship - Retail, O2 Shopping Centre (6 months)
We’re launching our Landsec Internships – exciting new opportunities to join our business with six months of paid work experience. It’s important to us that Landsec reflects the communities we’re part of, which is why our internships aim to give people who might not have previously considered working in the real estate industry the chance to start their career in our organisation. Landsec Internships are entry level meaning it doesn’t matter if you have any work experience, what school you went to, or if you went to university. You might be at the start of your career, or even looking for a change in career. The placements are designed to build your confidence, transferable skills and experience in the world of work, while giving you the opportunity to contribute new insights and perspectives to our business.
Area of Responsibilities
As the Retail Intern, you will support the Retail Manager in helping to improve the centre’s facilities, communicate with our brand partners to support them day to day. Your day might involve improving the customer experience for a disabled or neurodiverse guest to the centre; helping to improve social media or website content; supporting with events held at the centre; or assisting the Centre Director in a weekly ‘floor walk’, making notes of any works needed and following up on actions.
In this position, you will learn how a busy shopping centre is managed. You will learn how to work in a team, build new relationships with different stakeholders, develop your confidence in communicating at all levels, build time management skills, and manage an event with support from your colleagues.
We’re looking for someone who is outgoing with a desire to try new things. You will enjoy working with different people and believe the best outcomes result from in-person communication. You will be comfortable working on projects independently and work with initiative.
Landsec Internships aim to give you the first step on your career journey into the real estate industry. We’re looking for enthusiastic people who are ready to learn, get involved and make the opportunity their own. You don’t need to have any qualifications or previous work experience to apply for our internships, but you may be asked to demonstrate a good level of written and spoken English. If you haven’t thought about exploring a career in property before, why not give it a go – we’d love to hear from you!
