Interns

Truly moving internships

An internship here means you’ll return to your studies with a professional edge and invaluable network. We tend to inspire a confidence, drive and newfound skills that put you in a prime position to get the graduate programme or role you really want.
The programmes

Moving beyond the theory

First or second year university student? Maximise your summer break or placement year by discovering how we can put your degree to work, shaping the future of the real world. And let us show you how you take your skills global. From learning how a few lines of code connects millions of people to exploring the heights and depth of our futuristic transport projects, see what it really takes to be here with us.

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.  

Training and development

Advanced skills and real-world experiences

We 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.

Testimonials

What do our Interns say about us?

“Being an intern at Siemens is a fantastic journey. I’ve grown and had the chance to manage my own projects. One of these was developing a web application to aggregate key security data, extracting relevant information and displaying it professionally. For me, that’s an amazing way to mark the start of my career and a time of great personal development.”
Andy Butnaru, Intern of the Year 2019
