Student Opportunities

Who are we looking for?

Every year, we recruit a group of exceptional students to complete their 12-month industrial placement with us. Apollo’s students have an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice, and get valuable experience within the manufacturing industry, by working on live projects as a valuable member of the team.

Student placement opportunities are made available in several departments, including: Production Engineering, IT, Marketing, Quality, Technical and Finance. The placements that we offer change annually to match our business requirements.

I really enjoyed my placement, I've been involved in many different areas including; designing, building and testing test equipment for internal use at our external test houses. My placement covered loads that I’ve not yet covered at Uni and it's helped bring to life what I’ve learnt there, I’ve been able to implement the theory into real world designs. Everyone at Apollo has been very welcoming and incredibly helpful.

A placement doesn't have to be temporary

Over the years, many of our placement students have since returned to Apollo or to our parent company Halma to continue their careers. We take pride in nurturing talented individuals, and with Halma, the opportunities can be wide-reaching, both in career development, and the various locations around the globe.
