GE is transforming itself into the world's leading digital industrial company - bridging physical and analytical worlds, selling at scale in 175 countries with the best local leaders, and creating a better GE for employees and customers. GE has been operating in the UK since the 1930s. Today our 18,000+ employees serve the energy, oil & gas, healthcare, aerospace, transportation and financial services industries. We have a strong commitment to the UK economy across locations including London, Aberdeen, Amersham, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Leicester, Nailsea (North Somerset) and Southampton.

As the “125-year old start up,” we believe that good ideas can come from anywhere—from the most senior leaders to the newest team members. Successful people are like successful ideas. They don’t happen overnight but need the right environment to reach their full potential. That’s why our internships provide opportunities to collaborate on exciting projects, not only with talented peers, but also with top leaders in your field. We are a truly global company that reflects the communities we serve. Diversity is not an ideal we strive for, it’s one we live by. We give passionate people the tools, support and mentorship to become leaders in their field.

This is where passionate people get the tools to become extraordinary. The ones who dare to lead while learning, who can follow a legacy of innovation, and write the next chapter. What the world needs, is you.

Here is some more information about the industries we serve in:
