UK Undergraduate Placements

Do you want to join our undergraduate programme in 2017? Take a look at the opportunities on offer here.

If you're currently at university, spending time on a placement or internship with us will help you get a better understanding of the areas that inspire you the most. You’ll be able to develop your technical skills and gain valuable experience to add to your CV. You’ll also be making important contacts in the industry and if you do well and like what we do, you’ll be able to fast track through part of the graduate recruitment process later on. In fact, this would be the ideal starting point for a graduate career with us.

Our paid undergraduate opportunities include:

Summer placements – for students who are currently studying at university. Internships are available for all degree years, but please check job descriptions for individual business requirements.  Our summer internships generally last 8-12 weeks.

Industrial placements – these are longer placements for students and count towards your university degree. They are typically between 8 and 12 months long.

Hear from current interns in this video.

Selection process

For both summer and industrial placements we advertise in September for opportunities the following summer.

Step 1. Find the right role for you. Take your time reading the job descriptions and learning about us, you can only submit one application so we want to make sure it's the right one for you.

Step 2. Register your details. So you’ve chosen the role, and you’re ready to apply. We’ll ask you to kick things off by completing a short registration process designed to gather some basic details about you.

Step 3. Situational judgement tests With your computer, find somewhere quiet where you’ll be able to focus. We’ll present a range of work-based scenarios to you in video format and you’ll select the most / least likely outcome from a list of options. This shall take around 20 mins and needs to be done in one attempt.

Step 4. Full Application. Here you’ll give us some more information about you, your experience, and education. This will take a little time, so find somewhere quiet and give us as much information as possible. You can save as you are going along.

Step 5. Interview. Interviews are conducted either face to face or over the telephone. You’ll be offered a selection of times and we’ll arrange this at a time that suits you. Here we’ll want to find out more about who you are and how you’ve learnt from your experiences to date as well as your future aspirations.
