Overview

On this two-week virtual work experience programme, you’ll meet Siemens experts who will give you an overview of the engineering and technology sector. You’ll learn about the company and how it addresses key concerns in the industry, including diversity and inclusion.

You’ll explore the core areas of the business - from mobility to smart infrastructure. And you’ll discover the variety of roles across the company and how to kick-start your career with a Siemens apprenticeship, internship or graduate scheme. You’ll also have opportunities to ask questions so you can get a clear picture of what a career at Siemens could look like for you.

The programme will also include some vital employability skills to help you think about entering the world of work. And, the ‘Getting Career Ready’ module will encourage you to think about the skills you need for a successful career. There will also be a range of quizzes and activities to help you develop your knowledge of the sector and give you a clear idea of what it is like to work at Siemens.

The virtual work experience programme involves around 10 hours of activity. You can complete the work over 2 weeks, meaning you can fit it around your schedule (whether that be school or college). There are live webinars to get involved in, but if you’re unable to attend these you can watch recordings on-demand.
