About: Hunter was born out of the British obsession to unearth something new. Forged by the desire to discover, the spirit of Hunter was created. Since the business was founded in Scotland in 1856 we have taken the path that others dare not take. Consequently, we are proud of our history of innovation and pioneering design.

We take the path that others dare not take. We innovate and evolve what it means to be British. We pursue a simple, perfect function. We equip people who want to find their own path. We believe that if you’re born a pioneer, you’re always living in an era of discovery.

This is a split role, supporting two different product teams – Footwear Product Development team 
and Apparel Product Development team

The Product Development Intern’s role is to support their line manager and product development teams, from briefing stage to market launch. This role will be a mixture of admin, project work and general supporting functions.

 The Footwear (FTW) and Apparel (APP) product development teams are two small but busy teams, so this will be a hands-on role. The candidate will report into the Footwear Product Development Coordinator but will be a key figure in both Apparel and FTW teams.

Through this internship you will learn the basics of product development in Footwear and Apparel and how a business operates within a season. You will also learn transferable skills – team player, cross functional team workings, good communication skills, and be a valued member of the team with personal objectives and team responsibilities within the seasonal development.

In addition, there will be exposure to Hunter supply and factory base and external courier services. The intern will also work closely with other interns within the business.
