Innovation doesn’t come from machines, it comes from imaginative, creative and knowledgeable people who take resources and turn them into leading-edge products. Innovation comes from the types of Placement students we’re looking to recruit. Just as our engines rely on a variety of components to work as one to create power and energy, Cummins relies on its employees.

Providing opportunities for Placement students is an essential part of our strategy to develop the skills base within our organisation and most sites offer such opportunities.

Our preference is for students to be aiming towards a 2:1 or higher. A second language would also be beneficial to this global company.

Remember, our vision is clear: “Making people’s lives better by unleashing the Power of Cummins” - and that includes you!
