"At LKW WALTER, interns are treated as equal members of the team."

Eleonora R., From intern to Transport Manager

Eleonora R.

Born and raised in Sicily, Eleonora studied international relations in Leeds and had realistic propects of an international job in London. Ultimately, however, she opted to work for LKW WALTER in Kufstein - and it's worth finding out why.

One of the reasons was the long-standing partnership that exists between WALTER GROUP and Leeds University. Employees regularly visit the university and talk about what it's like working for the company. This prompted Eleonora to apply for a nine-month internship in Kufstein - and her internship led to a permanent employment. "At LKW WALTER, interns are treated as equal members of the team. You are fully integrated and get to learn an incredible amount in the supplementary courses and seminars as well."

Two things particularly impressed Eleonora: firstly, the variety and dynamics of the job. Secondly, the appreciation of her colleagues and supervisors. “I don't have a lot of professional experience yet, but I'm convinced that there isn't another company quite like this.”

Just a little detail, by the way: today it's Eleonora who presents WALTER GROUP to students at Leeds University.

“I don't think there's another company quite like this.”

Eleonora's personal tip:

From my own experience I'd say that if you're after a highly relevant internship, there is no better option than LKW WALTER. Not only do you get to expand your knowledge and skills, but you get to know yourself better.
