Step manages Puma's UK based sandwich placement programme. PUMA look for commercially aware students with a strong interest in sports, fashion and the industry as a whole.

Application Process

Once you've submitted your application to any of the Puma Sandwich Placements (with the exception of the IT Placement) you will be emailed with details of a task you must complete.
You will be given the deadline for the return of task in that email. Once you have received that email, your status on the Step system will change to "contacted".
You can submit your completed tasks to pumaapps@step.org.uk.
We will not review tasks until after the deadline on the job adverts (13th February) and therefore you may not receive further correspondence from us until after this date.
Once tasks are reviewed we will email candidates to let them know if they have been successful in reaching the next stage. The next stage is a telephone interview with a member of the Step team.
It is anticipated that face-to-face interviews at Puma will take place during March.

The 2019/2020 Puma Sandwich Placement Programme is now closed for applications. Please watch this space for news on the 2020/2021 programme and for any graduate roles.
