The value of practical experience in the workplace has long been recognised to offer benefits to the spintern, providing valuable experience of the work environment and the skills that are crucial to a successful career, and benefits to the sponsor or host organisation who can identify a project that might otherwise not be achievable, carried out with a fresh pair of eyes and perhaps a fresh perspective on their own organisation and possibly provide an informal extended interview of a potential employee.
The scheme has been running since 2013 and continues to grow in popularity. We always encourage enquiries from potential host organisations who have a short-term project (typically of eight weeks duration), and who would like to offer individuals the opportunity to gain new skills and an insight into their business.
We welcome applications from individuals from all disciplines who are enthusiastic to work in the Space sector and are keen to develop new skills, applying and building on the knowledge they’ve acquired in their studies to date.
Project Descriptions are uploaded as we receive them from companies, and are then advertised for 4 weeks before a firm closing date. It is up to you to keep an eye out for new opportunities, which can arrive at any time. If you have any questions regarding SPIN, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
