There is no better place to start your professional career than with a yearlong internship with GE UK. GE interns work together to solve real-world challenges, sometimes spurring innovations that change the way we do business.
GE is hiring pioneers, problem solvers, dreamers and leaders across the globe. Today, more than ever, the world needs great minds. What the world needs...is you.
In the 12-month Mechanical Engineering Internship, you'll gain invaluable skills and experience covering all aspects of mechanical engineering from requirements analysis, to product design to defining test specifications.
If you are passionate about Mechanical Engineering, we would like to hear from you.
Within this internship, you could be working closely with different functions such as Manufacturing and Product Quality, working on jet engines and aircraft structures, oil and gas products for downhole technology, measurement and sensing or looking at computed models for product design.
You will be guided by structured goals and objectives and will have responsibility to deliver on inspiring projects. 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 interns across the UK.
The internship will start between June to August 2018 for a duration of 12 months. We currently have internship opportunities in Aberdeen (Scotland), Cardiff (Wales), Cheltenham (Gloucestershire), Farnborough, Glasgow (Scotland), Groby (Leicestershire), Hamble (Southampton), Lisburn (Norther Ireland), Newcastle, Peterborough, Prestwick (Scotland) and Rugby (Warwickshire).
If your preferred location is not currently shown, we would still encourage you to apply, as new locations may become available.
The closing date for applications is 30th January 2018. However, we review all applications on a rolling basis and therefore advise you to apply as soon as possible. The vacancy will close once requirements have been filled.
The selection stages include online assessments, video interview and a final on site interview. Should your skills or experience be suitable for other internship opportunities, we will also consider you for these without you needing to submit a further application. When submitting your application, we request you to use an email address that allows us to contact you throughout the year.
