  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Working with data in National Security Department. My role has been mainly focussed on Natural Language Processing.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Developed my coding skills greatly - a lot on Python! Great to develop team work skills especially all being done remotely. Also had to present some of my work which is great experience.

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • Yes - right from the start I was involved thoroughly in the project which meant you are thrown in a bit in the deep end! But it means you learn so much and once up to speed, I was fully involved in the project.

  • Please rate how meaningful the work you were doing was
  • 5/5

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • Everyone on the team was super helpful and they all felt really approachable for any questions I had. I was also assigned a graduate buddy in a similar role to mine which was useful to ask any stupid questions!

  • How would you rate the support and guidance from your line manager?
  • 4/5

  • How would you rate the support and guidance from the wider team?
  • 5/5


  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Considering we've all been working remotely, I have been given the opportunity to meet the team in person. There have also been lots of events for interns which have been great for networking. Only given it 3 stars because of covid, not much can be done about that.

  • How would you rate the inclusiveness of the culture?
  • 4/5

  • How would you rate the social opportunities?
  • 3/5

  • How would you rate the diversity initiatives?

  • 7. Would you recommend BAE Systems to a friend?
  • Yes

  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to BAE Systems
  • My interview was online on Hirevue due to COVID and was very pain-free to complete. I also had to complete a coding interview after that. The 'games' on the assessment centre were pretty standard maths and visualisations etc. Ask as many questions as you can and speak to as many colleagues and interns as possible - they will all be useful contacts!
