About Tesla

Tesla’s goal is to accelerate the world’s transition to electric mobility with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. California-based Tesla designs and manufactures EVs, as well as EV powertrain components for partners such as Toyota and Daimler. Model S is the world’s first premium sedan to be engineered from the ground up as an electric vehicle. Model S was named Motor Trend’s prestigious 2013 Car of the Year, achieved the best safety score of any car ever tested by the NHTSA, and Consumer Reports are calling it the best car it has ever tested.

Our rapid expansion across Europe means our demand for high caliber talent is ever increasing. As such, we now have a need to take on a small number of interns across our European Business. Our internship is like no other in that you will take on real responsibility from day one and there really are no limits to what you can achieve. We foster an environment in which anyone can make changes, take on projects and truly make a difference to business success. But, you need to be the sort of person who can make things happen for yourself, you will not have your hand held within Tesla; so if this is you then you are the person for us. We need self-starting interns who can make their own way within some challenging and ever changing business environments.


The Role

Selling cars is our business and vital to our success across the world. We have an extremely desirable and high tech product to sell in the Model S and subsequent models. Throughout Europe our high caliber sales team operates within our, Tesla owned stores, and being a successful intern within this area can be the launch pad for your career within Tesla.

The role will involve supporting sales events within your base store and potentially other regional stores. We are looking for interns who can help us increase the brand profile with their contribution to store activities and events, as well as learning how to sell directly to our customers. Our sales process is not a hard sell due to the nature of our product, but nevertheless we do need influential communicators who have a passion for our product and providing an excellent customer experience from start to finish.



Responsibilities may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Supporting sales events within base store and potentially other regional stores.
  • Being a brand ambassador for Tesla Motors within the region as well as supporting marketing and newsletter programs.
  • Learning in detail the design of our cars and becoming able to deliver product demonstration to potential customers
  • Administrating the sales process as appropriate as well as providing administration activities for the events and other marketing activities
  • Working within a team of between 5-7 and supporting other team members to deliver an excellent sales process.
  • Additional projects may be possible during your internship within the sales function.

  • You will also be able to take on the role for at least a 6 months from September 2014
  • You will need to be open, friendly, customer orientated and willing to work in a team.
  • You will need to have a flexible approach to work and a 'can do' attitude
  • Able to operate effectively in a very fast moving, developing and constantly changing company
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and spoken
  • Possess drive, enthusiasm and a genuine interest and curiosity in the business
