Join us for a summer

Summer placements can be undertaken during one of your summer holidays while you are studying. They are an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into life and work at NPL. We'll provide you with challenging assignments and all the support you'll need to make the most of the experience.

A unique year in industry

Industrial placements last 12 months and are usually undertaken in between your second and fourth year at university. To apply, your placement must be supported by your university. Our 12-month placements are aimed at students who have the skills and experience to add value to our company, as well as the potential to build a long-term career with us. We aim to recruit ambitious and capable people. It's important that you're passionate and eager to learn.
