Name: Aoibheann O’ Meara
Current College Course: BA Criminal Justice, University of Limerick
Internship Department: Legal & Compliance
I chose to apply for an internship at Lidl because I wanted to gain valuable experience while learning about the role of a Legal department of a large-scale business. During my time in Lidl, I’ve learned all this and more. Through various projects that impact all IE and NI stores, I’ve met some great people, some who I’d consider friends rather than colleagues. There’s a brilliant atmosphere in Lidl Head Quarters.
I’ve developed lots of new skills while working at Lidl. I’ve improved my IT skills, my communication skills and even my confidence. My ability to manage my time has also improved, whether that’s knowing what to prioritise or when to prioritise it.
My internship with Lidl has provided me with real experience in a professional working environment. It has allowed me to consider my future prospects and really figure out what path I want to follow. If you’re thinking of doing an internship at Lidl, I would say go for it!
