This is an internship that is designed to suit you. There is a broad portfolio of placements available on this finance internship in Spain, offering scope for you to be ideally matched to a unique opportunity that suits your interests, motivations and skills.
Placements are available in sports centers, consulting firms, tech companies, tourism businesses and even at professional soccer/football teams. Interns are able to request a placement in a particular industry or express a preference for the type of work you want to be involved in. However, these are subject to availability.
Due to the breadth of possible placements, the nature of interns duties can vary greatly. General duties can include (but may not be limited to):
- Analyzing financial data
- Financial report writing
- Writing investment proposals
- Producing tax documents
- Reporting on financial markets
- Managing financial project operations
Internships typically require collaboration and assistance with a number of team members, as specific activities will depend on the internship placements current needs, projects and client requests. You’ll be supported by a qualified mentor who can provide key advice and support when it comes to financial management and processes in Spain. As an intern, you will need good time management and organizational skills. You’ll be willing to use your initiative when it comes to finding solutions and be open to assisting with a wide range of tasks.
Spanish language proficiency is not a requirement to join. However, interns should expect that a language barrier can still be encountered to a certain extent. Interns should be prepared for the very natural and normal frustration of not always understanding what is being said around them. Come prepared and willing to surmount a language barrier (and ask for help when needed), as opposed to being intimidated by it. Bear in mind that internships in Spain include five introductory Spanish language lessons, which are provided during the orientation period. Any additional Spanish language lessons must be coordinated and paid for separately. We encourage all interns to take advantage of the opportunity to learn some Spanish skills during their program (or develop their existing vocabulary).
Valencia is a popular tourist city on Spain’s south-eastern Mediterranean Coast. It’s well known for its historic old town and relaxed way of life. In recent years, Valencia has established itself as a fantastic hub for culture and enterprise. While the city is broadly celebrated for its modern City of Arts and Sciences Museum, it’s an equally desirable destination if you love the outdoors, excellent cuisine and fantastic weather!
