About us

Welcome!

Congratulations on your offer! We receive tens of thousands of applications each year, and you stood out! Be proud of this achievement, a testament of your hard-work and dedication to your career so far.

So, what do Siemens do?

We are a technology company focused on the industries that form the backbone of our economy – industry, infrastructure and transport.

 

From more resource-efficient factories, resilient supply chains, and smarter buildings and grids, to cleaner and more comfortable transportation, we create technology with purpose, adding real value for customers. By combining the real and the digital worlds, we empower our customers to transform their industries and markets, helping them to transform the everyday for billions of people.

Our history

Transforming the everyday since 1847

From a small workshop in a back courtyard in Berlin to a global corporation: Few industrial companies can look back on such a long, successful history as Siemens can.

Pioneers of Technology

Historically, Siemens had a relatively simple business model: we manufactured and supplied equipment for large industrial players – who relied on us to install things such as trains, wind turbines or assembly lines.

Manchester 

This is Siemens UK HQ and one of our most exciting locations. We’re close enough to the city centre so you can live amongst its incredible scene or travel in by train, but just enough outside that you could live in one of the city’s attractive suburbs. As for our offices, we have everything on site for you. Why not take a break in our Beehive restaurant, serving a seriously tasty and changing menu which is subsidised. Plus, our sports groups, wellness room, coffee machines and nearby pubs and restaurants are all here for us to live our experiences to the fullest together.

Ashby

Right in between the buzzing towns of Leicester and Derby, we’re situated in the quaint village of Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Our modern site has everything you need, from a café and canteen where you can catch-up with colleagues, to a wellbeing room where you can recharge your batteries. Our Ashby team is a tight community with enough space to explore your capabilities. Outside of work, there’s a leisure centre where you can play sports, as well as beautiful restaurants, bars and shops nearby.

Chippenham

Not far from the beautiful city of Bath, and with easy access from Swindon, our Chippenham site is a great place to work. Here, our colleagues enjoy experiencing Siemens together. With such a down-to-earth culture our on-site café is a great place to meet people, maybe even the senior leadership team! Chippenham has plenty to keep you entertained; from on-site exercise bikes, social groups and sport classes, beautiful places to grab a bite to eat, and a few famous pubs we like to go to on Fridays!

Congleton

We’re out in the fresh air of your typical Cheshire village. You can live in any of the bigger surrounding towns, from Chester to Macclesfield and even Manchester while still getting here easily enough. And whilst it’s nice to see some of the country, we also have everything you need here. Everyone knows everyone and our grads say they feel like a family. So you can often find us socialising in our on-site café and restaurant, or going down to the nearby gym where we all get a discount. And, obviously, there’s always time for the pub on Fridays if you fancy it!

Farnborough

A brand new office since 2021, Farnborough is on of our most lively sites, it’s easy to get to by hopping on the shuttle bus from Farnborough station, or there’s plenty of parking if you come by car. Nearby you can find the Farnborough Airport, a gym, a pub, Starbucks, Costco and the Village Hotel Farnborough. And if it’s your kind of thing, after a busy week, the pubs and clubs of Reading, Guildford and even London are nearby.

 

Glasgow

We’re right in the heart of this exciting, modern city. So much so, you can’t help but be inspired by its diverse energy. We’re connected by all the city centre train stations, so it’s an easy journey into work. And once you’re here, you’ll join a welcoming and down-to-earth group of people who you can learn from and have fun with, regardless of how senior they are. Our grads are always complimenting us on our culture, which makes it easier to build friendships and enjoy everything Glasgow has to offer.

London Euston

You’re going to have a lot of experiences to remember here. Obviously, the main draw is that we’re as central to London as you can get. Being here means you can travel in if you choose to live outside, or be anywhere in London within 30mins if you decide to live amongst The Big Smoke. Either way, you’ll be mixing with a great group of grads, all serious about their ambitions, but most of whom are more than ready to be social. Which we encourage when you’ve literally got it all on your doorstep and the keys to the city.

Northampton

This is a really convenient spot to work. We’re barely a 15 minute walk from the town centre, which means you’ll have access to everything – on-site and all around us. You can often find our grads socialising in the canteen or by the food vans on their breaks, or walking into town to do a bit of shopping and grab a pub lunch. We’re always saying what a great vibe and culture there is to the place. We even get involved in sports groups and different classes together, so it’s easy to unwind and get to know the people you’re working with.

Poole

This is a lovely part of the south coast to work on. We’re right by the buzzing beachside hub of Bournemouth, but also have the space we need to work. Plus, we have loads on-site. Our grads love to socialise and brainstorm ideas in our café and restaurant. And after work, a fair few of us take part in sports teams and running clubs. There’s a good range of people here with great personalities to either match your own, or bring you out of your shell. It’s a nice, easy place to make friends and grow in every respect.

Southampton

You can find us at the heart of Southampton near to town and by the river. It’s a great spot if your programme revolves around Mobility, as it’s a hub for taking a tour of our trains. But it’s not just perfect for learning. We have an on-site café, restaurant and gym where our grads hang out and get to know each other. Plus, Southampton is easy to get to and from, and definitely an exciting place to live and socialise. We guarantee you’ll make experiences to remember here, both in and outside of work.

Whilst a quaint little village, Stoke Poges is where you can get a masterclass in financial services. We’re just outside London, so many of our grads avoid the rat race and enjoy a quiet rush hour travelling out of the city, while others live in the beautiful but lively towns nearby like Gerrard’s Cross and Beaconsfield. Either way, everyone knows we’re in a lovely area with great on-site facilities like our café and restaurant. So the culture is genuinely amazing, from getting together to go down to the pub, joining sports and social clubs, or making use of our access to a 9-hole golf course.

If you’ve ever been to York, you’ll know there aren’t many more beautiful or entertaining places to work. Our sites have everything you need, with a restaurant and gym where grads love getting together. But more than that, this city is a great place to socialise together, get inspired and have experiences to remember. We’ve created a nice, down-to-earth atmosphere where people of all levels are just regular people who you can learn from and have fun with. We’ll be seeing you!
