There’s no need to wait until you graduate to start your career. We offer 1 year Industrial Placements across a wide range of areas including business and finance, consultancy, project management and engineering.
The programme offers valuable industry experience, enabling you to develop lifelong skills and a broad understanding of the work we do.
Upon successful completion of your placement year, you could receive a conditional offer to join BAE Systems as a Graduate and further your career (subject to performance and availability of suitable roles) without the need to reapply.
We focus on delivering learning and personal development that enables you to stretch yourself and fulfil your potential. All of our Industrial Placements offer you the chance to gain new skills and invaluable industry experience. We provide you with the opportunity to put theory into practice, learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, and gain insights that can only come from real world work environments and exciting projects.
For Finance placements, you must be on course for at least a 2:1 Bachelor's degree in a STEM related subject as well as 120 UCAS points or equivalent (excluding AS Levels and General Studies)
We ask all candidates to apply online using our application form to ensure our selection process is fair and consistent. Following your online application you will be invited to undertake a virtual assessment involving gamified assessment challenges and recorded questions. If you are successful, you’ll be invited to either a virtual or face-to-face interview.
Our main recruitment window runs from the beginning of September every year.
Please note: where sufficient applications have been received, roles will be closed, therefore early application is advised.
If you are successful you will commence your Industrial Placement in June 2022.
Individuals who are due to graduate prior to the commencement dates of our undergraduate programmes are not eligible to apply and should instead consider applying for one of our graduate offerings.
We are an inclusive employer and strive to recruit, retain and inspire the best people from the widest pool of talent. We encourage and welcome applications from all sections of society and are happy to discuss any adjustments or arrangements, as required, to support your application. Please be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both security and export control restrictions. These restrictions mean that factors including your nationality, any previous nationalities you have held, and/or your place of birth may limit those roles that you can perform for the organisation.
We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.
