Covid– 19 Update - Apprenticeship, Internships and Graduate Positions
Candidates waiting for interview/assessment centre
Due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, and in line with government guidelines, we have cancelled all upcoming face-to-face assessment centres, which is the final stage of the recruitment process for the role you have applied for with us. Instead, Siemens will use virtual interviewing tools.
Candidates with accepted offers
We are currently working to the start dates that have been communicated to you. If there is any change in government guidelines that affects start dates and our onboarding process, we will of course be in touch.
The majority of our vacancies have now closed due to filling from our applications that we have received over the last few months. We will be opening again in the Autumn for vacancies starting in 2021.
What's on offer?Whether you’re in the first or second year of your degree, embarking on a summer break or doing a placement year with uni, this is your chance to learn about how our work impacts everyday life across the world. And how you could be there at the centre of that work. From learning how a line of code develops into millions of downloads to exploring the depths and heights of our varying transport projects, build your skills and see how you can be here with us, shaping the future.
Brave enough to re-imagine the world around you?
People choose different careers for very different reasons. For some, it’s money. Others, it’s doing work that will change the world. Then, there are those who just want somewhere to fit in. You know what we think? Any career worth your time should offer all this and more.
Some of our key locations are:
- Euston, London
- Stoke Poges
- The Crystal, London
Training and developmentWe put our interns to good use. Here, we'll challenge you with new ways of thinking and set you targets that will make a genuine impact on the business. So, if you join us on one of our 12 month internships, you'll follow our structured Internship Development Programme (IDP) that will capture your imagination, unleash your potential and lay the foundation for a meaningful career. We've carefully designed two events and three modules to maximise your potential at your current stage in life. How did we develop them? We asked undergraduates what tools would be most valuable, and combined them with the skills companies like us are looking for.
The ideal person will:
- Be studying for a relevant degree and on track to pass with a 2:2 or higher (some roles may ask for a 2:1 or higher)
- Have an interest in Engineering, Business, IT, HR, Manufacturing, Finance or Communications
- Have the ability to adapt, collaborate and solve problems
- Be curious to learn and want to truly help make a difference
We always say that it's best to check the individual job description for the role you're interested in, as the pre-requisities may differ between roles.
A year ago, I was an intern myself. Now I’m a manager. Once my internship was over, I asked my line manager if there was any way I could stay on working for Siemens part-time while I went back to university and we found a way to make it work for both of us. More recently, I started working full-time at Siemens after finishing university in May. A manager role came up quite early on and I applied to show my interest. I was successful and now I even have an intern working for me.Claudia Hurst, Human Resources Intern of the Year 2015

A games-based assessment is a method of assessing a candidates behaviours and traits, as well as ability, in a more fun and engaging way. They directly gather observable evidence of behaviours and traits that have previously been impossible to measure (in traditional numerical and verbal reasoning testing) - and most importantly, you have more fun doing them!
There isn't any way you can particuarly prepare for the assessment, but just make sure you're in a suitable environment where you won't be interrupted!
A strengths based interview is a way of interviewing that focuses on what you interests you as a person, which is then assessed against the core strengths that have been identified in the Siemens Entry Level Talent (ELT) top performers. This allows us to focus more on your potential and what energises you, rather than your past experiences.
To help you prepare, it might be useful to think of what tasks/activities you've particularly enjoyed, and think overall about what you enjoy/what interests & energises you and what you like/dislike etc.
