European Student Placement Agency
6 Month Strategic Management Think Tank Internship
ESPA (European Student Placement Agency) is a recruitment agency whose goal is to find high quality internships for European students in the UK. We work closely with our host companies to ensure the positions provide students with a great experience, both professional and personal.
The Host Company
Our client is a major international energy company, headquartered in London. Our client constantly looks to
push the boundaries of what’s achievable and it’s their people who make this possible.
There is a significant opportunity to join a new intern “HR Think Tank” as part of a major endeavour to
Modernise & Transform a key segment of their business. The interns selected will be a part of an exciting pilot
which may be rolled-out across other functions later in 2017.
We are looking for 4 interns to form this new Think Tank, to explore a range of global HR challenges. The aim
of the intern team is to work on specific topic briefs, to understand best practice, build insight and develop HR
focused proposals which will enable the business to flourish in a changing world. The questions we will be
examining may include:
- How can we build a truly inclusive working environment?
- What is the future and potential of Predictive People Analytics?
- How can we enable a new kind of people mobility in a global workforce?
- How can a new approach to recognition (including implementation of a digital recognition tool) support
and / or drive a new culture?
- What are the future Strategic Workforce Planning tools and process in a contemporary context?
The tasks require students with creative ideas, analytical capability, a strong interest in Human Resources and
a can-do mentality, as well as the wish to apply their specific skills and expertise in an open and challenging
environment. We are looking for the ability to think broadly and deeply about HR and people at work in a global
context, with the backdrop of rapidly changing demographics, emerging technologies and the social and
environmental changes that underpin many of the wider global shifts that are currently emerging.
You wish to be part of a progressive group of like-minded individuals searching for new ideas and
developing new insights for Human Resources.
You have a track record of successful team work with the ability to work with a diverse group of people.
You would like to work in a dynamic environment where there is space for new ideas, wider thinking
and ways of working and where supervision is more ‘light touch’ guidance rather than day-to-day
You are a self-starter, adaptive to change and can respond quickly and positively to revised scope and
direction of activities.
You are ideally a Master level student.
BENEFITS: All ESPA’s services are free for students and alumni. The benefits are:
1) Paid Accommodation.
2) Paid Utility Bills (electricity, gas, water and council tax) + Internet Access
3) Commuter travel to work (accommodation will be found within an acceptable commuting distance

700€-1000€ per month (depending on location).
There is no salary over and above the benefits offered, unless specifically stated.
