merck internships
At Merck, we have worked with CoSector - University of London for the last two years as we looked to invest in the youth of the UK. I have had the pleasure of mentoring two fantastic cohorts of graduates, many of whom have secured promotions at our company following their initial steps into the industry. CoSector - University of London has made the process so simple and communication has been fantastic at every stage: advertising, recruiting and managing the graduates during their journey with us at Merck has been a breeze, and we are excited to be working with CoSector - University of London again for our third intake of graduates this October.
— Steve Morris, Brand Manager, Merck
