Digital & Technology Solutions Summer Internship Programme

Technology: IT & Software Development
£17,850 pa (pro rata)
1st February 2019

As pioneers of the world’s most advanced power generation systems, our business needs IT & data innovators. Utilising leading technologies, we enable our business to design, manufacture and service cutting-edge products in Civil Aerospace, Defence and Power Systems.

This is your opportunity to experience a dynamic and critical part of our business. You could find yourself exploring ways to make aeroplanes fly for longer using less fuel. Or developing a data lake for our customers. It might be that you’re helping our power generation customers to understand the health of their MTU engines. Or delivering analytic solutions that have a direct financial impact on the nuclear industry. You could even help develop applications that will drive cross-team collaboration. 

The programme

Over the course of 10 weeks, you’ll get the opportunity to develop your business and technical expertise, whether by working in one of our world-class innovation labs, using the latest programming and data analytics skills, learning from industry-leading experts or working on research projects that deliver value to the business. It’s a great insight into our business and perform well and you could be offered the chance to join our graduate programme.

What you’ll do

You’ll experience Data Innovation or IT and your placement could include working on a corporate IT project (we’ve just introduced a global, cloud-based HR management system), being part of an agile multi-skilled team that turns data into value (we call them ‘data innovation cells’), or helping our business units to develop future opportunities. You might look at how we can best manage our ecosystem of suppliers or research the latest Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning technologies to determine how they could benefit our business.

What you’ll need

You should be on track to achieve a 2.1 degree in any subject. You’ll be naturally curious – you’re someone who looks beyond the obvious and who’s always trying to find better ways of doing things. You certainly won’t be afraid to challenge us to help drive improvements, and you’ll be passionate about the possibilities that come from working in such a fast-paced and innovative environment. Beyond that, we’ll want to see strong communication, organisational, team-working and problem-solving skills.
