Undergraduate Placements 2018/19

Undergraduate student placements are open for 2018/19

Our placement scheme

In the UK, we offer 12-month placement opportunities to undergraduate students looking to gain practical experience within a vibrant and innovative industrial setting. As part of the scheme, you will be partnered with a mentor, have regular reviews with your Line Manager and work on projects that impact the business.

Training and development is provided throughout the placement with successful applicants having multiple opportunities to develop transferable skills in addition to gaining ‘hands on’ experience in a technical discipline. 

As part of the scheme students get a chance to cultivate their independent thinking and problem solving skills in addition to working in and contributing to a team. Cross functional/department working and participation in other research activities is also encouraged, where appropriate. Previous work experience in a practical ‘hands-on’ role would be useful but not essential.


Minimum requirements
We are looking for undergraduates who are undertaking an industrial sandwich degree course across a range of disciplines including: Chemistry, Biological and Life Sciences, Psychology, Forensic Science, Materials Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Product Design, Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering.

Additionally, candidates will need to have:

Benefits
• Salary of £16,000 per annum
• Subsidised gym membership (£15 per month)

• Participation in the Discretionary Company Bonus Scheme
• Participation in the Company Share Reward Scheme
• Participation in the Company Pension Scheme
• Private Healthcare Cover
