Software Engineering Placement Placement

In the 12-month Software Engineering Internship, you'll gain invaluable skills and experience in covering all aspects of software engineering from software design and integration to testing. Depending on skillset and role requirements, you will develop your programming languages skills in (but not limited to) Java, C, C++, C#, Python, Raspberry Pi and/or Arduino. You could be analysing requirements, designing an application or defining a test specification. You could be supporting with configuration management, database development and system monitoring, and engaging with internal and external customers and third party vendors.

You will be guided by structured goals and objectives and will have responsibility to deliver on inspiring projects. We will support you throughout the year to ensure you make the best of your GE experience. Your manager will offer coaching and mentoring, and the Company will provide the opportunity to connect with other interns across the UK.

If you are passionate about Software Engineering, we would like to hear from you.
