At KSL we are aware there are various levels where students require the opportunity to work in a real company and in an industry that interests them. Due to this, we have three areas where a student is able to join us.
Work Experience – Years 10/11 at School? You can join our Production team for 3-5 days, your school will dictate this. You may be helping build small electronic items, and experience what it is like to be part of a hard working team producing products to a high standard. You may also get the opportunity to get a look at the sorts of things our Software and Hardware design teams get up to.
Summer Work – For those who have completed Year 11 or are at college or University and looking to spend some of your summer working for 2-6 weeks, we would love to meet you. Your job/duties would vary dependant on your age, but you could be involved in Production, Hardware, Software, Admin or Infrastructure.
Graduate – If you are looking to study and work in your industry of interest at the same time, We would be delighted to have you join one of our teams. You would be working whilst receiving training, with the possible opportunity of joining our team as a full time member of staff later down the line.
