At Galp we know that an internship represents an opportunity for you to start your professional life. That is why we want to provide enriching experiences!

If you are still studying, you can conclude your training at Galp with a curricular internship. These internships can range from 1 to 9 months and are directly connected to your field of study.

If you have finished your education (technical/professional degree or higher education), Galp can have the right challenge for you. As you get closer to starting your career, we want you to be able to develop day-to-day activities in the company that will allow you to consolidate your training and develop your professional experience. These internships can have a duration of up to 12 months and include an internship grant (to be defined according to the intern’s position).

It helped me grow, develop competencies and get a sense of what does not come in the books, (...) get to know the ropes of an industrial site, of how a chemical industry works and its importance in the day-to-day life of populations.
