Job Opportunities

Throughout the year a number of opportunities to join our dynamic team may arise, either through corporate recruitment, funded internships or student placements.

We are continuously finding placements for students and graduates through our internship facilitation scheme with local businesses, and these are spread across a number of disciplines (ie: Engineering, Marketing, Computer Science etc).

When details of paid internships are published by our university partners, we will share details of them on this page.
