How GE Works...

At GE we put our ideas to work. We make things that matter, things that make life better. GE Works.

If you’re interested in working within aviation and looking for a placement rich with challenges and unlimited opportunities for growth and development, then join GE. Today, more than ever, the world needs great minds. What the world you. 

Being part of Oliver Crispin Robotics (OC Robotics/OCR) is so much more than just turning up and getting a pay cheque at the end of the month, the team are talented, dedicated and hardworking.  Every day at OC Robotics is different and you will be exposed to interesting and challenging opportunities while working with some of the biggest companies in the world.  If you are not afraid of a challenge then this is a great place to learn.   

Although we are a robotics hardware company, a robotics degree is not a pre-requisite. We need high-energy, self-motivated individuals with the vision to help carry our business forward.  The work is academically rigorous, intellectually demanding, and requires exceptional problem-solving, communication, leadership and interpersonal skills.    

Our offices are in Bristol in the South West of England – an area fast becoming a major centre for robotics. The South West is a beautiful place to live, with good infrastructure, great universities and fabulous beaches not far away from the city of Bristol. Our offices are located a few minutes’ walk from Filton Abbey Wood Station and on a regular bus route.  

Roles and Responsibilities

In the 12-month Electrical & Electronic Engineering Placement, you'll gain invaluable skills and experience in covering all aspects of electrical and electronic engineering, including customer engagement, requirements analysis, supporting with the design of machines and generators for multiple markets, defining a test specification, performing software product configuration and systems/customer acceptance testing, delivering training and consultancy services and getting involved in project work.   

You will be guided by structured goals and objectives and will have responsibility to deliver on inspiring projects supported by your manager and team around you. We will support you throughout the year to ensure you make the best of your GE experience. Your manager will offer coaching and mentoring, and the Company will provide the opportunity to connect with other placement students across the UK.
