Summer Vacation Placements

Rate My Placement logoJoin us as an undergraduate student on summer vacation and get paid an excellent monthly salary. During your time with us - typically eight weeks - you'll join a project team which will give you an opportunity to learn, and to develop new skills within the varied and interesting engineering work which takes place here.

Should you be accepted onto our summer vacation scheme you will find it rewarding both for yourself and your career.

To help you find your feet, if you need to live away from home during your summer placement with us we'll give you practical assistance in finding local accommodation.

And after you've left us and if you're up to the job, there's the potential of returning to work for us as a Graduate Engineer after you complete your course - just like Guy and Rachel.
