Discover our Placement Opportunities

A Summer Placement or Year in Industry Placement is a great opportunity to experience life at QinetiQ and will help expand your horizons, whilst whetting your appetite with options for your future career.

We’ll make you an integral part of our team and give you a real job – with real responsibilities – from day one.

Achieve your best
We want to ensure you get the most from your time with us. That’s why once you join, we’ll work out ambitious but achievable goals for you. Through the support of a buddy and regular reviews with your manager, we’ll help you achieve them. On completion of your placement there may also be the possibility of being offered a provisional graduate programme offer.

Our Offerings
Our placement positions are typically for penultimate year students, as the roles are designed to potentially be a stepping stone into a graduate career with us. However, there is a degree of flexibility around this and we may consider exceptional candidates who are not yet in their penultimate year of study. We are looking for candidates who have the confidence to try new and challenging experiences, and who have boundless enthusiasm for learning. Enjoying teamwork and being passionate about delivering results is also a strength we look for!
