Your business placement in Thailand

After accepting you on the Thailand programme we will match your preferences, requirements and previous training with the most suitable host company. This personal approach ensures you receive the experience and training you want and the host company receives someone with the skills they need.

Business placements can include roles in Business development, Human Resources, PR, Revenue & reservations, Sales & marketing, Social media management, Training & development. We can sometimes organise rotations giving you experience in more than one area, depending on your length of stay.

Your work supervisor is the main “go-to” person for all your work-related queries. They will explain your role when you arrive at the host company, arrange your work schedule, give you regular feedback, answer your questions and help solve any problems which arise at work.

If you work hard and impress your colleagues, you may be offered opportunities you never expected.

Our interns doing Business placements in Thailand either live in private rented apartments or staff accommodation.

If your host company has it’s own staff accommodation then you will live here with other staff from your company and food will normally be provided in a staff canteen. Alternatively, your host company will provide a private rented apartment nearby and give you a monthly food budget.

Orientation & Staff support

You will receive an orientation on arrival and ongoing support from our in-country representatives.

Our UK staff will be in frequent contact with you before your trip while we make all the arrangements for your business placement in Thailand. We will arrange a group video call with you and several other interns before your trip to explain many aspects of the trip, ways of dealing with culture shock and homesickness and helping to set your expectations before you leave home.

On arrival in Thailand, you’ll be met by a nominated person from your host company at the airport who will take you directly back to your accommodation and explain the plans for the following days. You will meet your HR team for on-boarding and your friendly work supervisor will give you a thorough local orientation.

Our colleagues in Bangkok and our UK staff will keep in touch with you throughout your trip and are always available to talk to and give advice and support on Skype, Whatsapp or by email. They are also on hand 24/7 for emergencies.

If you join as part of your degree we will also communicate directly with your university Placement Office or Employability Office when necessary.

Health and safety

Your safety is our first priority.

Our staff in Thailand complete comprehensive checks before you arrive. If you join as part of your degree, we will help ensure that your university health and safety documents are checked and signed by your business placement in Thailand.

This means your university is able to verify the work placement meets their criteria. We work directly with universities on this.
