Students and internships at Mondi

An internship or student placement at Mondi is a chance to get great first-hand experience in our Poperinge site. Working closely with local schools, we offer internships every year in our offices and maintenance department. We also work together with further education schools – especially for technical master students, with the opportunity to work closely together on solutions as part of a thesis, that we will actually use in production later on.
