Our hotels are constantly looking out for diverse groups of interns to help their company with a variety of different challenges.


There are hospitality internships in hotels, and restaurants in many different parts of Portugal. They offer internships in different departments. It is possible to get receptionist internships as well as internships doing guest relations tasks. There is also the possibility of doing an internship with marketing and management tasks.

Working hours are usually between 30 to 40 hours per week. This may include time working in the evenings or on weekends. 

Benfits of the placements:


Sometimes accommodations is provided through the hotel, where you would stay in one of the rooms at the hotel or hostel for free. If this is not possible, we will help you to find the best suitable accommodation.


In many instances, the interns have access to the employees’ room where meals are available.


It depends on the position and in which hotel you are placed, but some of the positions offer a stipend of betwee €250 to €300 per month.

What information should interns provide?

Whether you are a student or a graduate, you can apply for our program. However, it is necessary to get a training agreement from your university or educational institution. Portuguese legislation requires the interns to provide a training agreement. Therefore, students that cannot provide a training agreement unfortunately cannot be assisted.

Usually, students and recent graduates do not have any problems providing a training agreement.
