Human Factors Summer Internships

As a Human Factors engineer, you'll help to ensure our products are safe and effective for human use.

Human Factors (HF) engineers support the Human Engineering process by applying specific knowledge and analytical methods covering the full width of the HF skill set to ensure the resulting system/service is able to perform its mission, achieve its goals and be supported in its operational environment. This includes consideration of human characteristics (anthropometry, sensory capabilities, etc.) and the effects of stress, workplace design, information and control requirement definition within human machine interfaces and environmental ergonomics.

Welcome to Engineering in the real world.

Roles Available

Submarines - Barrow-in-Furness

Entry Requirements

To apply, you’ll need to be on course to achieving a minimum 2:1 Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance.

In terms of personal qualities, we look for people who are highly motivated and analytical. You’ll be able to see how the smallest detail affects the whole system and must be focused on quality, safety and reliability as these are the factors which give our products an advantage.

Learning and development

We recognise that development is key to you fulfilling your professional potential and us delivering our business commitments. That’s why we’ve created schemes where you take ownership of your career aspirations and we give you support, training and practical experience to help you succeed.

First things first: your career with us starts with an induction to welcome you to your chosen UK business. Here, you’ll meet fellow graduates/ undergraduates and find out more about what your future holds. Then, shortly after joining, you’ll be assigned a mentor who can act as a source of advice and insight when you need it.

Whichever scheme you join, we’ll encourage and support you to reach your full potential. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about us, receive world-class training and support and perhaps most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved in our projects – gaining the insights that can only come from real world experience.
