What we are looking for:
We are currently looking for a Materials Industrial Placement to start in August 2018 for 12months. This placement would be suitable for students studying for a degree in Materials Science or Engineering.
What to expect:
Being part of the team from day one, getting involved, the more questions you ask the more you will gain from your experience. Working with highly skilled and experienced engineering professionals, and graduates who you can learn and develop with. It is important to know that many of our industrial placements have been successful in obtaining graduate roles on completion of their degree.
Other students taking part in the student placement programme are accommodated in our Aerodynamics, Design, Vehicle Science, Test Facilities and Race Operations Departments.
Student Placement Application Process:
When shortlisting student placement applications, we look for relevant subjects at University as advised above. Students will have a minimum of two years’ experience at University before the placement starts. With a return to your course for a minimum of one year following completion of the placement.
In addition to the above, we are look for someone who has a true passion for their subject, interests in leisure activities such as go-karting, restoring or working on cars, or building working models of cars and planes are helpful but not essential. We also heavily encourage applicants to let us know of any previous engineering work experience as we celebrate the fact we are an engineering company, this is our passion.
When applying for student placements opportunities, all students are expected to submit a covering letter along with a Curriculum Vitae containing the following information:
Those students that are shortlisted will be invited to attend an assessment day. Assessment days are scheduled to take place in February at our site in Grove. We will obtain academic references as part of the selection process.
Arrangements for Travel and Accommodation:
It is expected that the student takes sole responsibility for making suitable travel and accommodation arrangements.
Applications for the student 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.
Please note that we cannot give applicants individual feedback unless they have attended the assessment day at Williams.
Closing Date: 31st January 2018
