L’Oréal Portugal
Internship Program

L is an exhilarating and intensive internship program that aims to recruit recent graduates to join our teams in Lisbon during a unique 12 months professional experience, starting from March 2019.

At L’Oréal, we “build from within”, as we believe there’s no substitute for hands-on experience when it comes to leadership development. That’s why we give our Junior Talents opportunities to own their projects from day one and encourage them to try new things, even if that means making mistakes – testing and learning is our approach. You’ll push yourself to take smart risks, be coached by some of the brightest minds and find plenty of ways to master your skills each day.

You will be given real responsibility to work on amazing projects and work closely with senior stakeholders within the business. You will be exposed to different teams through cross-functional projects and encouraged to share your ideas and new ways of working. We are proud of our culture of learning and therefore you will receive a tailor-made integration plan to set you up for success.

If you’re looking for a company that magnifies your strengths, enables you to acquire cutting-edge skills, and supports your personal development, then you’re in the right place. At L’Oréal we have a 70:20:10 leadership development concept. The majority – 70% of learning – comes through experience – you rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty on day one: experimentation, learning, success. Around 20% comes from learning with and from feedback through your coaches, peers, teammates and buddies. And the final 10% come through engaging formal learning in the right training, at the right time, such as online courses, conferences, and workshops.

Because there is no innovation without daring, throughout your internship you will be challenged every day to think, do, fail, fail better, do again, do better and share your learnings as you escape your comfort zone. It takes courage! But the more confidence you build, the more risks you dare to take creating a positive spiral of increasing self-assurance.

If you’re thinking “This is it” brace yourself and Lead the Change with us, taking Beauty innovation to a whole new level.

Who are
WE LOOKING FOR

It’s hard to put into words what we think about the L’Oréal Culture, because it’s really a way of life, more than anything else. It’s doing the right thing. It’s empowering those around you. It’s going above and beyond to make your colleagues’ day. It’s about going that extra mile because you want to do a great job and make your team succeed. It’s about becoming a better person because the people you work with are challenging you to become the best version of yourself. It’s inspiration and ideas… so many ideas! It’s the relationships we form and the friendships we make. It’s really the basis of making you feel that you belong here.

Diversity is embedded into our Group’s DNA since it provides the range of expertise, experience and the agility we need to respond to the ever-changing, fast-paced environment we are in. That’s why we look for different kinds of personalities, mindsets and backgrounds to do great things together.

reasons
TO CHOOSE L
Our teams are
SUPER HEROES
We’re a crazy mix of creative, caring, smart and eccentric teams who just want to make a dent in the universe. Here you’ll strive and drive. You’ll try, fail, try better and succeed. But you will never do it alone. It’s that amazing team that will make you jump out of bed every day. Not because you have to, but because you want to do some mind blowing stuff and succeed together.
Impact from
DAY ONE
We are a perfect match for those hungry to make a big impact. At L’Oréal you get to take on every task as if you’re the leader or CEO of that project. No matter what your title says, you’ll get to be more from day one.
Never too young
TO LEAD
L’Oréal is known to be a place where you get to advance quickly if you take initiative and push the boundaries while helping others shine along the way. We have a strong tradition of growing people who have challenged the boundaries of the real, of the possible. The success of L’Oréal is in your hands. Make it happen!
Grow beyond
YOUR LIMITS
We like to place bets on people. To take a chance and give them responsibilities beyond what they might get in another big company at the same stage of their career. At L’Oréal you are like an elastic band. The more you stretch, the greater your capacity. Here, the only limits to your career are the ones you create.
Learn from
THE BEST OF THE BEST

Thinking about learning Chinese or upgrading your skills in coding? Thanks to our huge investment in our people through the partnerships with some of the best virtual training platforms and universities around the world (Harvard, Columbia University, HEC Paris and many others) you can earn recognized certificates for free and become tomorrow’s cutting-edge professional. And guess what… that is just a sneak peek. How amazing is that?

We care
FOR YOU
Many of our Share & Care program benefits are aimed at supporting you (and sometimes your friends and family). Back pain from sitting? We’ve got free massages for you. L’Oréal Products? 3 times a year you’ll get a box with lots of products! Haircuts and manicure? Come on, you’ll be working at the Cosmetic leader of the Beauty Industry, of course we have that covered in our office. Is Fitness important to you? Good news! It is for us too and that’s why we have a gym and a nutritionist ready to support you. Enjoy group classes? Our Yoga and Pilates classes have huge success, so we got you a spot. Do you know we like to celebrate and party? For that, you get a day off on your birthday. These are some examples of what you can expect from a Love Company!
Question the
STATUS QUO
We have created an environment where you are expected to challenge the status quo and stand behind your ideas and unique point of view. It takes courage. True! But if you’re an innovator looking for a place to set all your crazy ideas into motion, you will feel at home at L’Oréal.
Bored?
NEVER
You dread sitting at your desk and refreshing your email just for something to do? Not happening. Not at L’Oréal. There are no two days alike and that’s what gets us excited every morning. That’s because we are nimble and everything we do exists in a whirlwind of constant change adapting to new situations. But right here, there is literally nothing you can’t achieve in such a dynamic and fast-moving environment. That means that working here is challenging, invigorating and rewarding, but definitely not dull. Who wants ordinary anyway?
Have
FUN

We work hard, that’s for sure. But let us tell you – we celebrate at 110% to bond us as teams. Rafting or bungee jumping team buildings, kick-off parties and amazing travels – just to name a few. Join us and see for yourself!
