Your internship in the tropics

You don't know what you want to do yet? This is the way to find out!

Students from all over Europe have come to Tropical Islands to do a mandatory internship - including Romania, Finland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Hungary and many other countries - have found their way to Tropical Islands.

 While our guests enjoy the wonderful variety of the Tropics, behind the scenes many doors are also open to our interns, so you can see all the daily processes and workflows that go into keeping Europe's biggest tropical holiday resort running smoothly. In addition to classic operative departments like food and beverage or guest services you can get a taste of other exciting fields that don't even normally exist in the hotel industry - for example the work of climbers or water engineers. In addition we always have vacant posts in strategic departments like the social media or graphics departments.

This is what our interns have to say about Tropical Islands

trainee - ilona

Ilona, Corporate Development

I really wanted to work at a company that was unique - that's why Tropical Islands was the perfect employer for me!

Already during my internship I was surprised by how varied and challenging the tasks my colleagues gave me were. Working with them was really fun even back then as they showed me everything and I learned a great deal. After my internship I was offered a position as Junior Manager in the Corporate Development department, which I gladly accepted.

I still enjoy coming to work here every day, and I would highly recommend working here to anyone!

trainee - hilda

Hilda, Strategic Development

After completing a degree in hotel management abroad I was looking for an internship in a non-operative area of the leisure and hotel industry.

Finally, on the Hosco website I came across an advertisement for a Strategic Development internship at Tropical Islands that seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.

After two months I was offered a permanent position in Product Development.

Naturally I couldn't turn down an opportunity like that because during my internship I had already been given plenty of responsibility. I was allowed to work on several projects and contribute to their implementation. The learning factor was huge and the atmosphere on the team was really good.

Today i´m working as project manager for Tropical Islands - and still loving it!
