Project and Internship Vacancies

WMG SME Group and Catapult Reach Internship Programmes - Summer 2017

The WMG SME Group has developed a specialist internship programme for students and graduates to work with Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs). This year, we are funding a series of internships available based both in SMEs and WMG to help SMEs overcome innovation challenges across themes such as new product development, automation, industry 4.0, manufacturing, lightweight materials and design verification. The following internships are based primarily within SME organisations in the West Midlands with supervision provided by WMG.

The WMG centre High Value Manufacturing Catapult operates a Catapult Reach programme specifically for SMEs and we are supporting companies to overcome product development challenges across themes such as customer insights, business strategy, manufacturing, materials and design verification and validation.

Below are our current Internship vacancies. New opportunities will be coming up all the time in the next few weeks so please check back regularly between mid-May and mid-June 2017.
