It’s the best way to put theory into practice. A Summer Internship at BAE Systems gives you a real insight into working life in one of our UK businesses, while honing your skills. Our internships provide on-the-job training within a structured framework. We only offer these placements when there is real work to be completed, with over 100 placements available each year.

Business – Our business interns are integral to our ability to deliver successful projects and vary each year depending on where we need your skills to make the most impact.

Engineering – Cutting-edge innovations and world-leading technological developments are the foundation of our business and, as a result, we always have a wide range of engineering placements available.

Finance – In Finance, you won’t just be working on the financial aspects of some of the most exciting projects in defence, aerospace and engineering, you’ll also be working and learning from some of the most accomplished professionals in their fields.

Consultancy – As a Consultancy Intern, you would have the opportunity to focus on equipping the client with a basic technical understanding of our capabilities and markets.

Technical Delivery – As a Technical Delivery Intern, you’ll undertake a mix of technical challenges, business problem solving and client liaison which could be in a range of areas from Software Engineering to Cyber Security Technical Analysis. 


Joining us means you’ll be expected to make a real impact. That’s why you can expect a real rewards package in return:

• Starting salary of £16,800 pro rata

• 6.5 days holiday over the 12 weeks

• A potential fast track to a Graduate scheme or other permanent employment opportunities (subject to performance and availability of suitable roles)


To join our Industrial Placement scheme, you must be on course to achieve at least a 2:1 Bachelor’s degree. This can be in any subject for our business or finance opportunities and must be in an engineering, technical, numerical or scientific subject for our consultancy, engineering or technical delivery placements. For our finance placements, you also need 280 UCAS points (or equivalent).

Our selection process works on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask all candidates to apply online using our application form to ensure our selection process is completely fair and consistent. Your online application will then go through a variety of selection methods, either online or face-to-face, and is likely to conclude at an assessment centre.

We particularly welcome applications from women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities, and will make reasonable adjustments to our application and selection process for people with disabilities.
