Placement as an Intern or Student Trainee

Interns and student trainees are always welcome at Drees & Sommer. Whether you want to do a voluntary or mandatory internship, or to gather some practical experience while studying, we offer exciting projects in a variety of industries. For example, you could support the Project Management Team with the construction of a new library or shopping center, or assist our experts working on Green Building certification. Whatever you want to contribute, we offer you the opportunity to build on your knowledge by putting it into practice.

Anouk Godelet
Project Manager, Basel

‘First an internship in Luxembourg, then a student traineeship in Frankfurt am Main followed by the Durchstarter program, finally direct entry as a project manager in my city of choice, Basel: I’ve already had insights into a variety of activities, become familiar with different projects, and been able to develop a network for myself. That helps me to deal with whatever arises. What I appreciate most about working with Drees & Sommer is that it’s a dynamic, international enterprise with a great team spirit, innovativeness, and further professional training – not to mention a lot of fun!’


You will join us in meetings, accompany us to building sites or on visits to clients, and contribute to the success of our projects. Everyday tasks can also include copying acquisition documents or conducting research. So, as you can see, an internship with Drees & Sommer offers a variety of tasks, which are not very different from those performed daily by our project management professionals.

Internships are possible in all areas of the company and the services provided during your internship will be appropriately remunerated.

Duration of Internship

To ensure that you can cover as many topics as possible to an appropriate level of detail, we recommend that you plan plenty of time for your internship – we are quite happy for it to be longer than three months. An internship can be a great start to your career at Drees & Sommer!
