Are you currently a student looking for an internship experience? A recent graduate tentatively taking their first career step? Whatever your situation, consider this – there are very, very few other companies out there who offer what we do.

A truly international, varied and dynamic working environment. Offices and activities all over the globe. The chance to make a positive contribution to the world through innovation. Loads of learning opportunities through development programs, training and mentorship. Participation in extremely cool projects, from artificial intelligence explorations to innovations like the game-changing OneBlade shaver, Sonicare DiamondClean smart connected toothbrush and Azurion, the new generation in image-guided therapy, or Lumify, the app-based ultrasound for compatible smart devices. Wouldn’t it be cool to work on any of those?

​​​​​​​In many countries we offer traineeships, internships and regular jobs. And don’t worry if you’re unsure about which direction to take. We’ll give you the space and support you need to discover your own path (plenty of our employees currently do something very different to when they first started).

Amaze yourself at Philips

Something bigger than us all

Working at Philips – whether you’re in marketing, finance, design, human resources, product management or otherwise – means being at the forefront of innovation and digital disruption. You may well be involved in hackathons, partnerships with external start-ups or ground-breaking research not taking place anywhere else on the planet.

What you’ll probably also discover is that your professional and personal lives often intersect in unexpected and fulfilling ways. For example, you could be part of a team that develops an ultrasound scanner which shows the first moving images of your sister’s unborn child. Work on an app that encourages your neighbor’s kids to brush their teeth. Or on personal care products that make friends feel better about how they look.

In other words; we’re not developing abstract products for faceless consumers. We’re bringing relevant innovation into real people’s lives. If that idea excites you, we’d love to have you on board. 

We get it. We fully understand that work is only one part of your life.
