The benefits of an internship at Volvo

An internship at Volvo Group will give you a chance to try out and apply your knowledge in a real business context, build relationships and perhaps take the first steps of your future career. ​

We value new ideas, curiosity and collaboration, so as an intern it is not only about your personal growth, it is also about ours. Thanks to your fresh perspectives, we can adjust our ways of working and get closer to the needs of the next generation of employees and customers. Together we shape the world we want to live in. ​

Volvo internship application process

The prerequisites and application process may differ between countries and fields of work, but we always select our interns based on how we will mutually benefit from working together.​

Some of our internships are available in our job portal, but if you do not find something suitable for your area of interest there are many more opportunities to be created together. Take the lead and contact Volvo Group in the country you are based to discuss your ideas for suitable internship assignments together with us.
