Year in Industry Placements

Our Year in Industry programme offers students who are still at University the opportunity to experience time in a global company. You could be working in our labs developing new concepts and innovations for our customers or researching into new breakthrough technologies for our vacuum solutions.

It’s an amazing insight into life inside an organisation that is growing and developing at an incredible rate. Typically, the programme lasts for 12 months as a paid placement.
