12-month Industrial Placement

Gain experiences that drive your career

Our 12-month industry placements give students a fantastic opportunity to develop their skillset and gain insight into the working environment. Envisage a placement year that allows yourself to be fully engaged in global wide projects, making critical decisions, connecting with colleagues across the world, and being given responsibilities that impact the business on a larger scale. 

If you are enthused through challenges and would like to develop professionally, this might be the placement for you!

We offer a wide range of industrial placement opportunities in different areas of the business including: Business - Digital Health, Business - Diagnostic Imaging, Real Estate, Manufacturing Engineering, Business Operations, Logistics, Materials, Environmental, Health and Safety, and many more.

Employee Stories

For a year, you’ll be based at one of our UK manufacturing sites or within the Sales and Service team. Doing your placement with us involves a variation of working environments from being at a desk in the office, to experimenting in the factories, to visiting customer sites.  

Our unique team spirit arises from embracing different perspectives, open debate, and the will to challenge conventions. Change is a constant aspect of our work. We aspire to lead the change in our industry rather than just react to it. That’s why we want you to seek, implement and celebrate your best ideas. We value equality, diversity, and maintain a supportive work culture in which you’re empowered to drive your own career and work your own way. We are what we are because of our people, who make us a Great Place to Work. 

We understand how overwhelming joining a large organisation can be, and for that reason we utilise the first 3 months of your placement to gradually introduce you to the business including a handover period with the previous placement student to ensure you feel totally at ease in our workplace. We have been welcoming placement students for many years, and they are genuinely valued across all the business areas.  

Remember, if you enjoy your placement year with us, and you impress us, you could be offered a place to return as a graduate post-university!
