Job Description

Procurement Intern - Savanna

Our goal at Elkay is to inspire everyday - customers, employees…and the employees of tomorrow. We focus on doing the right thing so we can be in business forever. Our values-driven culture emphasizes investing in people and treating them like part of the family. We're financially-stable and privately-owned with a solid reputation for ethics, integrity, giving back, and providing an engaging, inclusive environment where careers flourish and grow.

It's Elkay's people who really give us our edge. We empower our employees to take the lead in delivering Elkay's exceptional customer experience. Our commitment to our people is a recipe for success that has fueled our growth from a three-person shop in 1920 to one of today's leading international suppliers of plumbing, water delivery and cabinetry products. If you're ready for a new career challenge where everything you do will make a difference, talk to us about joining the Elkay family.

We are targeting students completing their sophomore or junior year of college who are interested in working in a dynamic and engaging work environment to participate in our internship program. Elkay interns will apply the skills and knowledge developed in college while contributing to exciting real world projects!

* Present findings/supplier offerings to key department staff

At the end of the assignment, the student should have a good understanding of supplier value, product, and service offerings.

We are targeting students completing their sophomore or junior year of college. Students completing their freshman year may apply, but we prefer students already into their core curriculum.


* Students completing their sophomore or junior year working toward a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, Supply Chain Management, Finance, Engineering or International Business strongly preferred
* Must be able to work 40 hours per week
* Ability to work with others, but highly self-motivated to achieve individual tasks efficiently
