Sumitomo Chemical UK accepts between one and four summer interns between June and August. This is an opportunity for interns to take on work that contributes to our business and positively impacts the clients and communities we serve. You will learn from us, develop your technical skills, experience what it is like to work for a small team in a global company, and gain valuable experience for your future career.

The internship generally lasts 3 months and is paid for (currently, £1,600 per calendar month).

The 2023 intake for interns has ended. Please check again next year.

What do we do?

Sumitomo Chemical (UK) is part of the Sumitomo Chemical group, a Tokyo-listed company (current annual report – opens in new tab). We distribute in Europe, Middle East and Africa a wide range of insect control products manufactured by our global affiliates, alongside providing technical and regulatory support that is second to none. Our cutting-edge active substances are used globally to manufacture household insecticides, indoor and urban insect control products for professional use, and for animal health and pharmaceutical products.

What is it like to work for us?

We are proud of our place at the cutting edge of so many technologies dedicated to saving lives, protecting health and enhancing social well-being, and of our diverse and international team. We benefit from being part of a major global chemical corporation, yet SCUK is small enough to retain a very informal, start-up like culture, and for each colleague to have a real impact.
