Job Description

What  you’ll  do  

Over  your  10  week  summer  internship,  you'll  be  contributing  to  real  projects.  You  could  be  getting  to  grips  with  how  we  prepare  the  supply  chain  for  a  new  engine  entering  production.  It  might  be  that  you're  visiting  our  storage  facilities  to  understand  how  our  inventory  is  stored,  and  thinking  about  how  it  can  be  better  managed.  

You'll  also  attend  key  meetings,  work  with  teams  from  different  parts  of  the  engineering  lifecycle,  and  grow  an  understanding  of  the  financial  side  of  things  as  you  reassign  inventory.  You  might  even  create  'how-to'  guides  and  data  summaries  for  internal  and  external  customers.  One  thing  is  certain:  you'll  learn  and  grow  every  day.

The Successful Applicant

What  you'll  need

We're  looking  for  analytical  graduates  who  are  detail-focused,  data-orientated  and  logical  in  their  approach.  Because  you'll  need  to  share  your  ideas  about  how  we  can  do  things  even  better,  it's  important  that  you  have  strong  communication  skills  developed  through  well-rounded  life  experience  -  academically,  socially  and  in  any  previous  work  situations.  

You  should  also  be  on  course  to  achieve  at  least  a  2:1  degree,  or  a  comparable  qualification.  Flexibility  is  important  too,  as  you  could  be  based  at  any  of  our  sites.  And  because  you'll  be  ambitious  and  driven,  you'll  be  excited  that  this  internship  could  lead  to  a  place  on  our  graduate  programme.
