An internship here is more than just a great way to get to know us - it’s an opportunity to gain skills and experience some of the incredible work we do. It could also be the beginning of a lasting career with us.
There’s a whole world of fascinating challenges and technically impressive projects here.
The Spring week runs for five days in March or April and is designed for students in the first year of a three-year degree, or in the second year of a four-year degree. During the week, you’ll get to know our business and some of our people. You’ll experience aspects of some of our projects, and there’ll be soft skills training too, along with a business case study at the end. If you make the right impression, we could well offer you a place on a longer internship.
The Summer internship lasts up to 10 weeks, depending on business area and give you experience of real work as part of a specialist team.
Your time here would start with a short induction, after which you’ll join a team working on a real project. This won’t limit your experience though, because you’ll be able to shadow in other areas if you like. You’ll have the support of a buddy, and we’ll give you regular reviews to make sure you’re getting the most out of the internship. Prove yourself, and you could be offered a place on our graduate programme.
What we give you
While our internship programmes vary in terms of length and structure, they all offer the same benefits. You will have the chance to gain some insight. By this, we mean insight into who we are, what we do, who works here, and whether we feel right to you as a potential graduate employer.
We’ll get you involved and give you real work to do, and you’ll be part of a live project. It’s the best way to gain experience, and the best way to see if what we do suits you.
You will also have the opportunity to progress. If you perform well in your time here, we could well offer you a place on the next programme. For Spring week, this would mean a place on a longer internship.
What we look for
Each of our programmes has been designed with a different audience in mind.
Spring Week is open to those in their first year of a three-year course or, second year undergraduates on a four-year course.
Summer internships are for undergraduates in their penultimate year. You must be on track for a 2:1.
We welcome applications from undergraduates from all kinds of technical and non-technical degree disciplines. Who you are and how you think are more important to us than what you’re studying.
As a business, we offer clever solutions to complex problems. This is impossible without curiosity, which is what we look for in our interns. You’ll need to be open minded, eager to learn, and keen to get involved in problem solving on a massive scale.
As you’d expect from our ‘connected excellence’ approach, we’re at our strongest when all of our people and business areas work as one. This means that the ability to work well in team is also something we focus on.
