DIVE IN: Open call for summer internship programme

10 April 2019

SONAE SPORTS & FASHION has just launched the second edition of DIVE IN, a summer internship programme which will happen in brands like DEEPLY, ZIPPY and MO. Internships aim at providing higher education students from various areas (IT, Fashion Design, Psychology, Engineering or Management) with a first immersion in the world of retail. Applicants may choose the SUMMER CHALLENGE, in which we challenge them to answer very specific needs in one of the business areas, or the SUMMER EXPERIENCE, which allows them to follow several teams, since product conception to sales in different channels.

In 2018, after a previous sorting process, we had 30 applicants on our Assessment Day and selected 16 DIVE IN Interns, 12 for SUMMER CHALLENGE and four for SUMMER EXPERIENCE. This year’s edition has 22 SUMMER CHALLENGES and 4 vacancies for SUMMER EXPERIENCE.

DIVE IN is the result of an adaptation of a pre-existing corporate programme, considering the identity of SPORTS & FASHION and the expectations students have on a summer experience in business context, making it a differentiated proposition.

In practical terms, DIVE IN is:

  • Flexible: applicants may choose both the internship modality and the period in which it occurs, within a timeframe that coincides with Summer;
  • Informal: the dress code we suggest is "jeans and trainers” and we foster a great proximity with all the parties;
  • Fun: we wish the internship to be part of the wonderful experience that is summertime, a complement to travelling, festivals and sunsets.

The programme ends on the crest of a wave, literally, with a surf lesson sponsored by Deeply.

In spite of just being the second edition, DIVE IN already is a fundamental piece in SPORTS & FASHION’s Employer Branding strategy, establishing itself as a first moment in a relationship we intend to be lasting with a wide pool of young talents. Applications are open until 15 April on
