You will gain a broad range of commercial experience across key HR verticals (Talent Acquisition, Organisational Planning, Employee Relations), while also partnering with a number of different business functions (Marketing, Sales, Retail, HR) in both the UK and EMEA. 

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates who are excited by the prospect of gaining exposure to the full spectrum of Nike’s commercial operations within the UK. This role will play in pivotal part in the attraction, onboarding, development and deployment of Nike’s greatest asset – it’s people.

  • Take part in a range of projects that help drive the TA Strategy within London, ensuring that Nike finds, connects and attracts the city’s top talent
  • Develop a strong understanding of the Nike business - the key functions, roles and skills within it, and build relationships with key business leaders and stakeholders. Support them in securing top talent for their teams in a timely, efficient manner
  • Take ownership of the UK Intern Programme across both Nike and Converse – from attraction, to selection, to onboarding

  • Strong administration skills - able to prioritise multiple tasks with an eye for detail
