Recruitment process

Recruitment process

I joined TOMRA as an intern in early 2021, as an international student in Leuven. I was expecting to be given some busywork. Instead, I was given a challenging project that taught me a lot and made a real impact on the company. I also got plenty of networking opportunities, which I leveraged into landing a job with TOMRA Digital business processes division post-graduation.

Available internships

Over the past years, we've had several internship students. They supported us on various projects, primarily expanding our market intelligence about some countries and regions as well as on specific topics such as sustainability and innovations within the Food Industry. An internship needs to be a win-win for both parties, and TOMRA ensures proper coaching throughout the project journey. In many cases, this has resulted in the students applying for an open position at TOMRA.
