Gill Instruments will be continuing to support the Engineering Development Trust’s (EDT) Year in Industry scheme for the fourth year in a row.
The Gill Group first joined the Year in Industry scheme back in 2011 to support students entering a career in engineering, develop their skills and experience and bring fresh thinking initiatives to the company’s development projects.
After another successful year with our students, which saw three student projects get shortlisted in the regional finals for their contribution to business award, Gill will be looking for more talented individuals to fill the available placements and help shape new engineering developments.
As a Year in Industry student within the Gill Group you will be exposed to a range of engineering specialisms from testing and processing to software and hardware design. We will encourage you to lead your own projects and explore new techniques and engineering practises that best suit the requirements and scope.
This year’s student, Rory Jenkinson comments, “a Year in Industry placement improves UCAS applications and CV’s. The experience I have gained from a working environment will be invaluable during university and future employment. I would definitely recommend Gill to anyone going into STEM subjects and for me, especially for electrical engineering.”
Gill also takes on student placements for a range of different departments around the company to provide valuable insights into the business world and encourage a passion for engineering.
