Interns - Head Office

We are a dynamic, forward thinking and award winning company established in 1992 and, since 2010, focussed solely on the maintenance of commercial kitchens for high end users. Our Head Office is based in the UK and in January 2015 we launched our successful new operation in Dubai.

We have exciting plans to open up other geographies in the months and years ahead. All roles with us will provide you with an opportunity to gain some great experience and skills working with experienced professionals and enable you to make a valued contribution to the future direction of our business. To make sure you gain a real insight into our business you are highly likely to take up one of our key roles in Operations, Service, Sales, IT, Finance or HR – and alongside you’ll be working on some great projects which will be vital to our future. We want to work with you to make sure your talents are channelled and your learning is maximised! Whether your projects are researching opportunities in new market sectors for our business, capturing sales opportunities for new territories or helping scope the way our operation works when we provide a new model of service, you will find the work challenging and interesting. You will be treated as key part of our team and have a clear structured development programme to give you the support and encouragement you need whilst you are with us.

As our previous interns will vouch for, we are always keen to retain talented individuals and provide them with interesting and rewarding long term career opportunities. We really hope you will love your time with us and want to come back and continue the journey…

We are looking for enthusiastic undergraduates or recent graduates who are results focussed. Business, Engineering, IT, FM or Hospitality graduates would be of special interest but a passion for this placement is more important than the subject studied.

"Helping the guys in Dubai has given me a massive buzz; if someone had told me 9 years ago that I'd be developing a team in the Gulf, I'd never have believed them. It's been a fantastic opportunity - to be given the trust and responsibility." - Paul Brooker, Technical Lead, Catering Engineers, McFT
