Best companies to do internship in the UK

Operating in the insurance area, Hiscox is well placed due to its concern for employees from the first day of work.

In addition, Hiscox also offers two graduate programs focused on the Business area. Both last 27 months, that is, just over two years.

5. Sky Betting & Gaming

Sky operates in a slightly different field for our reality here in Brazil: it is a company specialized in betting. Originally from Canada , the company today is headquartered in the United Kingdom and is classified by employees as a place of innovation, where it is possible to achieve goals that would not be possible to be achieved in other areas. There, they offer a postgraduate course in the Tech Academy program, which can lead to a master’s degree in Digital and Technological Solutions, accredited by Sheeld Hallam University.

4. Bromford

Bromford, on the other hand, is one of the UK’s largest housing companies, with more than 44,000 homes built in central and southwest England. Whoever works (or has worked) in the company highlights the welcoming atmosphere, with very dedicated employees.
