Introduction (about L’Oréal and internship program)

L’Oréal Middle East is part of the L’Oréal Group – the world’s largest pure beauty company with over 100 years of history and experience. We are a passionate team in a growing market, working to deliver our mission of Beauty for All through our local portfolio of 22 brands.

L’Oréal was founded by a scientist and we have always focused on cutting-edge research and innovation. Our innovation now also centers around the opportunity that the worldwide digital transformation provides and we are leaders in connecting beauty and technology.

Our business is energetic and vibrant, underpinned by strong ethical principles and our belief that financial performance and responsible business go hand-in-hand. We are driven each day by our six founding values – Passion, Innovation, Entrepreneurial spirit, Open-mindedness, Quest for excellence and Responsibility.

Our Graduate program is the foundation for building our future leaders. It is challenging and fast-paced with the opportunity to get hands-on experience of the inner workings of a successful, market-leading FMCG company, as you collaborate with and learn from some of the most passionate, creative and intelligent people you’ll ever meet.

Your rotations may take you across our varied areas of business, including but not limited to: Marketing, Digital, E-commerce, Sales, Category Management, Merchandising, Supply Chain and Finance. Is there a better way for a motivated and entrepreneurial Graduate to experience L’Oréal in full? We don’t think so!

Some of our previous Graduates are now launching new brands. Some of them are spearheading process improvement projects that will be implemented company-wide. Some of them have helped invigorate the role of digital marketing for our brands. Some of them have project managed E-commerce portal launches. And some of our previous graduates are now high-flying expats working across the world!

One thing they all have in common is that they were able to make a profound impact on the business. We take great pride in our Graduates and as such, we invest heavily in their training, support and development.

Here are some of the key features of our program:

  • Experience project-based work under the guidance of internal top talent.
  • Structured learning and development program.
  • HR support and mentoring from our top internal talent.
  • Opportunities to work across different departments, and with industry leading agencies and external clients.
  • The opportunity to fast-track your career.
