Put your ideas to the test

Whether you’re looking for a placement as part of your degree or about to embark on a summer break, we have plenty of internship opportunities that will help you develop your skills. A lot of interns come back to us after they’ve completed their degree too, so it’s a great way to advance onto one of our graduate programmes.


Intern Development Programme

Our 12-month Intern Development Programme is designed to give you a solid foundation to help you with your degree and future career. You’ll interact with senior management, develop teamwork and learn presentation skills (like how to create, structure and deliver killer presentations). Once you finish, you’ll be well set to take your next steps towards a graduate career with Siemens.


Summer Internship

Our three-month summer internship is designed to give you an introduction to the world of a global company. You’ll experience life in either Engineering, Business or IT and have the opportunity to build your professional network, ready for when you graduate.

Claudia Hurst

Human Resources Intern of the Year 2015

“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.”


Application requirements

What do I need?

We’re looking for bright, inquisitive students who want to make a difference. The ideal person:

  • Is 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).
  • Has an interest in Engineering, Business, IT or HR, Manufacturing, Finance or Communications.

How do I apply?

If you think you’re suitable, complete our online application and our online testing. Once you’ve completed that, we’ll see if we think you’re a good fit. If so, we’ll arrange a video interview to find out more about you. Pass that and you’ll be asked to come and take part in some exciting challenges that put your skills to the test. This could be anything from group exercises to presentations.

Who’s best suited for internships?

For a 12 month internship, the ideal candidate would be someone studying towards a degree and looking to complete a placement year. However we do offer shorter placements too.

Yes, we’re an A-rated sponsor under Tier 2 of the UK Immigration Points Based System (PBS). In the UK, we hire people based on merit and accept applications from both European Economic Area (EEA) and non-European Economic Area students. However you must have (or be able to obtain) the right to work in the UK.

Yes of course, although you may be better suited to a graduate role at Siemens. Please take a look at the UK Graduate Development Programme before making a decision.

When you submitted your application, you should have received an email from us acknowledging your application. We normally review applications once the closing date has passed, however if a role is advertised for an immediate start you may hear from us sooner.

We’ve found that online testing is a good, objective indicator of how successful graduates will be when they join. Our online system allows you to complete the tests in your own time and in a convenient place.

Unfortunately not. Candidates will only be given one opportunity (per academic year) to complete the test. However once you’ve passed it, you won’t be required to retake it for any further applications made that year. Just let your recruiter know this when applying.

Because of the high volume of applications we receive, it’s not possible to supply feedback at application and testing stages. However, if you’ve attended an assessment centre or interview and you would like feedback, we’ll happily provide it.

Yes. You’ll get reasonable expenditure reimbursed. If in doubt, check the details with us before you incur any costs.

Please let us know if you need us to adjust our processes – we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.

Simply log into the Siemens careers page and update your profile. Your details will then be updated and saved.

Absolutely. Please visit the Employee Referral Programme intranet site before your friend applies online.

Your recruiter will provide you with email updates throughout the recruitment process, so if you have any specific queries regarding your application, please contact them.

We recruit predominantly year-long industry placements, with a smaller amount of summer internships. We have a wide variety of internships available, across Engineering, Business, IT, Finance, HR and Communications.

We have a number of key sites across the UK including: Ashby, Congleton, Chippenham, The Crystal (London), Frimley, Hull, Lincoln, Manchester, Newcastle, Northampton, Oxford, Poole, Stoke Poges and Warwick.
