Finnebrogue’s marketing internship programme provides students, school leavers and recent graduates with the opportunity to gain valuable experience of marketing and communications at one of the UK’s leading food businesses.
The marketing intern will work with the marketing and communications team and support high profile nationwide campaigns. They will have excellent organisation, writing, IT and communication skills – and a strong academic record.
The internship programme presents an opportunity for bright, creative and energetic young people to be exposed to a fast-paced office environment and build experience of marketing, advertising and communications operations in a fast-growing, highly innovative business.
Interns will gain hands-on experience of delivering a marketing strategy that promotes the company and its objectives – whether that be removing nitrites from all processed meats in the UK and devising new innovative methods of making more sustainable food, to tackling social and environmental issues in our local community and working with the charities we support at home and abroad.
Interns will spend anywhere from two to eight weeks at Finnebrogue. All expenses will be paid, including travel and lunch. Interns will also benefit from discounted staff sales on Finnebrogue products.
The internship programme runs on a rolling basis throughout the year. We are currently welcoming applications for roles throughout 2021.

Describe a typical day at Finnebrouge
My internship has been very varied and every day is different. I’ve been learning to complete competitor benchmarking analysis. Helped at benchmarking events, cooking up products for suppliers. I’ve gained further social media management skills by running The Good Little Company’s social media accounts and cooking up recipes to create content. I’ve shadowed the Marketing and Communications managers in meetings and helped to brainstorm and create marketing campaigns. I have gained lots of experience that has helped me in creating an Applied Marketing Project for my MSc Marketing at Ulster University. I’ve enjoyed coming into the office as the team are so friendly and have really helped to make my 10-week placement the best experience possible.
I studied Dietetics at Undergraduate level and have been completing a master’s in marketing. I have a keen interest in combining my two degrees to work within the food industry. I choose Finnebrogue for my placement as its an innovative company with lots of opportunity to learn.
What would you like to get out of your apprenticeship at Finnebrogue?
I would love to gain practical marketing experience which will help me to gain employment after the internship is complete.
A creamy white wine pasta, and garlic bread of course…delicious
If money was no object and you were guaranteed to be successful, what job would you do as a career?
A travel critic, send me around the world to review hotels, restaurants, and destinations.
Hobbies outside of work
Cooking, travelling (when restrictions allow), eating out, watching Netflix and walking my dog Holly.
