WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
- Highly motivated students who are passionate about learning from our industry experts.
- Passion for engineering, innovation and technology.
- Candidates with a wealth of work experience who have gone the extra mile to absorb knowledge and gain experience along the way.
- Someone who is ready for the challenge! With our placements, you are a fully involved member of the team from day one. You work counts, you have an impact on our success.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The chance to be an integral part of the team from day one and the opportunity to work with highly skilled and experienced engineering professionals and graduates who you can learn and develop with - the more questions you ask the more you will gain from your experience. It is important to know that many of our industrial placements have been successful in obtaining graduate roles on completion of their degree.
Students taking part in the Industrial placement programmes can be accommodated in our: Aerodynamics, Design, Vehicle Science, Test Facilities Departments and Race Operations departments. We do not offer industrial placements on our Race & Test Teams or Marketing. If you are interested in Williams Advanced Engineering placement opportunities please visit their own dedicated careers page.
INDUSTRIAL PLACEMENT APPLICATION PROCESS:
When shortlisting student placement applications we look for relevant subjects at University in subjects such as Mechanical Design, Aeronautical Design, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics or similar related subject. Students will have a minimum of two years experience at University before the placement starts. It is essential that you should return to your course for a minimum of one year following completion of the placement. Please also note that we are unable to accept applications from students in their final year of their university studies.
In addition to the above, active participation in programmes such as Formula Student may be an advantage, as well as demonstrating an active interest in leisure activities such as go-karting, restoring or working on cars or building working models of cars and planes. We also heavily encourage applications to let us know of any engineering work experience. We celebrate the fact we are an engineering company, after all engineering is our passion!
When applying for industrial placements opportunities, all students are expected to submit a covering letter along with a Curriculum Vitae containing the following information:
• Your current career aims and how you plan to achieve them.
• Subjects that you are currently taking and plan to take.
• Relevant leisure pursuits and activities.
• Why work experience with the Company would be beneficial to you.
Remember it is your chance to showcase your skills and passions. Students that are shortlisted will be invited to attend an assessment day currently scheduled to take place at the end of October (26th/27th) or in early November at our site in Grove. Please be advised that we will seek academic references as part of the selection process.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR TRAVEL AND ACCOMODATION:
It is expected that the student takes sole responsibility for making suitable travel and accommodation arrangements.
Applications for the Industrial placement programmes should be uploaded through our website by visiting www.williamsf1.com. Your application will be acknowledged and we will update you with your progress via email during the process. We will not accept applications which are not submitted through our website, any paper-based applications will be returned to the sender with a copy of our policy.
Note: Due to the short term nature of both work experience placements and student placements we are unable to accept applications from candidates who do not have entitlement to live or work in the United Kingdom.
