This is your chance to learn about how our work impacts everyday life across the world and you could be there at the centre of that work. From learning how a line of code develops into millions of downloads, to exploring the depths and heights of our varying transport projects, build your skills and see how you can be here with us, shaping the future.

The Smart Infrastructure operating company intelligently connects energy systems, buildings and industries to adapt and evolve the way we live and work - our goal is to create environments that care. 

As a result of the Siemens ambition to be carbon neutral in the supply chain by 2050 and the current climate change imperative, we want to drive a greater focus on sustainability within the Smart Infrastructure UK supply chain to drive the progress towards this target. Could you be the intern to help with this?

The Challenge

Embark on your 12-month placement with us whilst taking part in our fantastic intern development programme. We will create an individual training plan to help you develop the specific skills and knowledge required for your role. By the end of it, you will be set up with the best knowledge and hands-on experience to equip you for your professional career in Environmental Sustainability.

Here is a taste of what you can expect as part of this internship:
  • Drive the sustainability in the supply chain initiative in conjunction with a project sponsor and focus group team within Smart Infrastructure Procurement
  • Support the definition of activities to be covered under the initiative and driving these activities forward during your time with us
  • Travel to engage with our procurement teams at other locations (when it is safe to do so)
The Candidate

We are looking for innovative and inquisitive candidates that demonstrate the following:
  • Studying towards a 2:2 or above in an environmental/sustainability related degree subject
  • Knowledge of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is preferable but not essential
  • You think logically, willing to self-learn and research, and take a creative approach to problem solving
  • You can work independently, safely and responsibly; take ownership of challenges and ideas and are looking to develop your ability to drive and lead change
  • You enjoy collaborating with others to find innovative solutions
What else do I need to know?

Alongside your role, the intern development programme will teach softer skills such as communication, teamwork, commercial awareness, digitalisation and innovation. We also offer plenty of opportunity to develop your career whilst offering a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package.

We’re looking for passionate teammates with the aptitude and attitude to succeed in the world of Environmental Sustainability. Apply now and join Europe’s leading engineering and technology company. 

The total rewards package for this role includes a competitive salary of £17,908. We know that not everyone’s lifestyle is the same, so we operate a flexible benefits scheme where you can tailor your benefits package to suit your individual needs. 

If we all thought the same, we would never think of anything new. That’s why we recruit great minds from all walks of life. 

Siemens recognise that building a diverse workforce is essential to the success of our business. We strongly encourage applications from a diverse talent pool and welcome the opportunity to discuss flexibility requirements and workplace adjustments with all applicants to encourage agile working, flexibility and innovation.
