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.

Siemens Smart Infrastructure 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. 

We in Smart Infrastructure focus our expertise on helping our grid operator customers supply power, safely and reliably to homes, buildings and industry.

Through collaboration and consultation, we proactively ensure that the products and services we deliver meet the established standards set by Siemens, as well as the ever-changing requirements and demands of our customers.

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 Quality Management / Assurance. 
Here is a taste of what you can expect:
