Case Studies: Internship, Pall Corporation

There was a great amount of training on my placement at Pall, which helped me to understand the nature of the business I’d be going into.

The placement lasted a year. During that time I was assigned to a line leader and able to work on different projects. There was also a handover period with the previous student, which helped a lot.

I have mostly been working on pressurisation units for the Airbus A380 which has involved a range of responsibilities such as design work; producing engineering drawings; documentation; talking to suppliers and even organising product testing. The work will vary though, depending on whether you work in qualification, design, stress analysis, or cabin air filtration.

I had to do some stress calculations for a complex shaped part, which was a challenge. Stress analysis isn’t really my strong point and I found it quite difficult, but there was always help at hand and it built my confidence. There was a great variety of work and Pall give students quite a bit of responsibility. I got to work on products which are used on the latest aircraft also enjoyed CAD modelling which I was able to do during the design process.

After graduating I hope to sign up to a graduate scheme of a major aeronautical engineering company and work towards becoming a chartered engineer. I would definitely consider working at Pall again.

Case studies: Internship, Lockheed Martin

I first saw Lockheed Martin’s placement programme in an advert at my university's placement office. It appealed to me immediately as the job description matched my career aspirations in project/programme management.

The placement was a year long scheme and I was put straight into the role I applied for. From day one I felt part of the team and had a project assigned to me which gave me responsibility and measured targets throughout the 12 months I was there.

Having never worked in an office environment, I was quite daunted by the prospect, and working up to 40 hours each week was initially quite difficult. But the team were really welcoming and made my year a great experience, providing support and guidance whenever I needed it.


My year out of university has given me the push to go for a First. I have learnt so much and I am even more determined to succeed now, when previously I would have been happy with a 2:1.After a year in a real role, I am even more convinced that project/programme management is my career goal. I have been offered a job with Lockheed Martin UK on completion of my Business Studies degree and if my grades are successful I will be back working there in about a year.

I would recommend anyone thinking of coming to Lockheed Martin UK to go for it. I have had a very worthwhile experience and have developed tremendously.

Case studies: Summer Internship, Ernst and Young: Teresa Mayhall

I was attracted to Ernst & Young as it is a global firm with a great reputation worldwide and a placement in the audit department would provide a number of different opportunities.

I applied online at www.ey.com/uk/careers then attended an assessment centre and an interview. I received a phone call the following day offering me a placement on the Summer Internship.

There was great variety in my placement - I was given the opportunity to work on several different clients and in several different industries.

I was surprised to be given a few projects similar to that of a graduate, in addition to the more junior tasks you’d expect to do as an intern. I feel like I had a really good opportunity to work to my strengths and develop new skills.


Everyone in my department was friendly, encouraging and went out of their way to help me achieve my potential. This made me keen to come back as a graduate and complete my three year training contract with Ernst & Young. Moving from studying to work was a fairly easy change. It was a nice break from university and helped me decide if I wanted a career with a large firm working in the audit department.

My advice is to apply early to increase your chances of being selected, then, if you get through, make the most of your time on your placement.

There are always opportunities to stretch and challenge yourself and it’s a great way to discover if accountancy is the career for you.
