This full-time internship is for six-months, with the opportunity to gain a paid and permanent role within Flight Centre UK Limited once your contract ends. The position is based in Flight Centre's Head Office, New Malden (20 minutes from London Waterloo).

You will assist the GSA team in preparing for sales training programmes and workshops as well as helping them with basic administrative and organisational tasks. Working within a team of four, you'll be an integral part of GSA and will gain the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects as your internship develops.

What We're Looking For? The ideal candidate will be computer literate, competent with excel and word, quick to grasp new concepts and most of all a good organiser who acts on their initiative.

This is an unpaid position however your expenses will be covered.
