Be part of the team at Orbex

Orbex is committed to supporting talent and offers an annual internship programme which provides students at different points in their higher education journey the unique opportunity to work across a range of disciplines.

Interns have the chance to gain experience in Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC), Structures and Systems Engineering.

The internship programme is available to candidates studying at an undergraduate or postgraduate level, with specific experience in mathematics, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, physics or aerospace. Applicants must be self-starters and demonstrate interest and enthusiasm for working in the space sector.

The paid placements are expected to last 10 months with the potential opportunity to join Orbex in a permanent role in the future.
