Year in Industry

Getting ahead in your career

If you’re passionate about change and want to get a head start in your career, then Year in Industry at Edwards could be for you!

Our 12 month paid placement offers students who are still at University the opportunity to work in a global company. You could be rolling out enhanced IT solutions for our global network, working in our labs developing new concepts and innovations for our customers, or researching new breakthrough technologies for our vacuum solutions. It’s an amazing insight into life inside an organisation that is growing and developing at an incredible rate. 

We offer a number of Year In Industry placements to meet the needs of different parts of our business. Our opportunities cover expertise fields in Engineering, Research & Development, Business & Information Technology, Finance, Manufacturing and Operations.

You will develop valuable skills and experience that you can't get at University alone. We’re looking for outstanding students, with questions that go beyond textbooks. Think this is you? Join us.

“During my placement year, I worked on a couple of different projects, this varied from putting together a global waste handling checklist to dealing with all the training material for the safety department and moving this from an established online learning platform to a new global web-based platform."

“I find it exciting that I’m exposed to a lot of different situations requiring different skills in engineering, which broadens my skill set. During my placement, I also reached the semi-finals of the 2018 Year in Industry’s Contribution to Business Award."
