Software Engineering Internship, Livingston, 12 months, June 2019

Role Summary:

In the 12-month Software Engineering Internship, you'll gain invaluable skills and experience in covering all aspects of software engineering from software design and integration to testing.

Essential Responsibilities:

Depending on skillset and role requirements, you will develop your programming languages skills in (but not limited to) Java, C, C++, C#, Python, Raspberry Pi and/or Arduino. You could be analysing requirements, designing an application or defining a test specification. You could be supporting with configuration management, database development and system monitoring, and engaging with internal and external customers and third-party vendors. 

You will be guided by structured goals and objectives and will have responsibility to deliver on inspiring projects. We will support you throughout the year to ensure you make the best of your GE experience. Your manager will offer coaching and mentoring, and the Company will provide the opportunity to connect with other interns across the UK. 

If you are passionate about Software Engineering, we would like to hear from you. 

The internship will start between June to August 2019 for a duration of 12 months. 

We currently have internship opportunities in Amersham (Buckinghamshire), Bracknell (Berkshire), Cambridge, Cheltenham (Gloucestershire), Lisburn (Northern Ireland), Edinburgh, Livingston and Skelmersdale (West Lancashire). 

The closing date for applications is 31st December 2018. However, we review all applications on a rolling basis and therefore advise you to apply as soon as possible. The vacancy will close once requirements have been filled. 

The selection stages include online assessments, video interview and a final on-site interview. Should your skills or experience be suitable for other internship opportunities, we will also consider you for these without you needing to submit a further application.  

Please only submit one application. If you submit multiple applications, the recruitment team will progress you for the role you are most suitable for. When submitting your application, please use an email address that allows us to contact you throughout the year.  

We offer internships across all GE businesses and our Internship Recruitment Team will provide further information on available industries and locations during the hiring process.

Qualifications/Requirements:

• Currently studying towards a Computer Science related degree – penultimate/final year 
• Passionate about Software Engineering 
• Able to take ownership for projects and work to time limits 
• Strong verbal and written communication skills 
• Analytical and problem-solving skills
• Proficient in Microsoft Office 
• Able to work as part of a team 

An internship at GE is an opportunity to learn while doing. At GE, you’ll work with business leaders in an atmosphere that will challenge you, while doing work that makes an immediate impact. 

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EU/EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post, as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.
