Infineum is a world-class formulator, manufacturer and marketer of petroleum additives. We number among our customers many of the world’s most recognised consumer brands.


Infineum offers students the opportunity to get hands-on experience working alongside respected industry experts. You will have the opportunity to contribute to relevant and challenging projects as part of a global team.

This valuable and varied experience will help you to develop your skills and increase your prospects for future employment once your studies are complete.  In fact, many of our colleagues have joined Infineum after successful placements; therefore, we are keen to develop a close relationship with a view to possible future employment.

Typically we recruit for internships in engineering, manufacturing, operations, chemistry, procurement, finance and supply chain.

Internships at Infineum can be for 6 or 12 months or 2 years for a management trainee in some countries.  Infineum recruits interns for functions across the company. Each internship posting will list the preferred degree, major and skills for the internship.
