Student Internship


The adidas Group strives to be the global leader in the sporting goods industry with sports brands built on a passion for sports and a sporting lifestyle. We would like to offer you the opportunity to explore the world of sports with a student internship. You will have the chance to get to know the working life and our different programs for school leavers. We would be very happy if you enjoy the internship that much that you will apply afterwards for an apprenticeship or dual study program with us.

How old do I have to be in order to complete a student internship?

In general we offer internships for students from class 8 onwards (ideally you are 15 years or older).

If I come from a long distance away, do I have to arrange my own accommodation?

Yes, you have to arrange your own accommodation.

Approximately how many student internships are offered each year?

We offer around 150 places per year.

Can I choose a department?

You can tell us in which department you would like to complete your internship, however we cannot promise that the internship will take place in that department.

Can I apply for several openings at the same time?

You may apply for more than one internship, however in order to offer other students the opportunity to complete an internship with the adidas Group, we will only take you into consideration for one internship.

Can I apply speculatively or only for openings posted?

All positions that we have are posted online. We do not have any other vacancies to fill. Therefore it is not possible to make a speculative application.

Are also other timings possible then the ones which are advertised?

Unfortunately no, we only offer student internships in the advertised time frames.

What should my application include?

Your application should consist of a cover letter, your CV, and your current school report. If you have them, please also include work experience references/confirmation.

What information should I include in my cover letter?

In your cover letter, you should answer three questions:

  • Why you?
  • Why the adidas Group?
  • Why the Student Internship?

How many pages should a cover letter contain?

Use one page to convince us about yourself.

How important is my grade average?

Grades alone are not the decisive criteria for us in the taking on student interns. The overall profile is important to us, including what you do outside school (e.g. work placements, part-time jobs, social engagement, membership of associations, etc.).

When will I receive a reply to my application?

The first response you receive will be a confirmation of receipt as soon as we have received your application documents. We begin the final selection once the application deadline has passed.

How long do I work per day?

The daily working time depends on your age:

  • Young persons (15 - 18 years) are not allowed to work more than 8 hours per day. At the adidas Group you will work around 6 hours per day (usually from 9am to 3pm).
  • Children (below 15 years) are only allowed to work maximum 4 hours per day.

What is the dress code?

We do not specify any particular dress code. It is important to us that you feel comfortable!

Do I get an internship confirmation?

Yes, you will get a confirmation after the internship is finished.

How can I contact you if I have any questions that are not answered here?
