Work Experience

SMTC UK welcomes individuals to come and learn from our business on a work experience placement. This is aimed at people who are aged between 16 and 21 years old, who are interested in a future career with us. The placement is your opportunity to spend time outside the classroom and learn about a particular area of work. The benefit of having your placement with SAIC is you will be able to find out what skills you have and what we are looking for when recruiting someone to fill a job vacancy. This will allow you to develop your self-confidence and communication skills.

We are looking for individuals that are enthusiastic, motivated and eager to learn. Your work placement will be with highly skilled individuals who will encourage you to perform and learn new elements.

Where are the placements?
All SMTC UK Placements are based in Longbridge, Birmingham.

How long are the placements?
Work Experience placements with SAIC are a maximum of two weeks.

How do I apply?
To be eligible for our Work Experience Placement, you must submit your CV to and state what dates you require. We will contact you to confirm you have been accepted and an offer of placement with SMTC UK.

Tips for Success
The more flexible you can be on your available dates the better chance you have of being placed within a department.  Many people agree time off from their job, school or university to undertake a placement with us. 

Demonstrating a keen interest in a particular department and explaining your reasons make you a more attractive offer to the host department.
Application forms must be submitted at least four months prior to the placement date.
