Year in Industry

Working at Martin-Baker is a unique experience – after all, we’re the world leader in the manufacture of aircrew escape and safety systems. See below for details on our Year in Industry and Summer Placement schemes and kickstart your career.

 

Martin-Baker offers a number of opportunities for undergraduate students who are looking for a one-year placement as part of their degree programme. As well as training you for a well-paid career, we will pay you a competitive salary and offer various employee benefits from day one.

All candidates will need to have the right to work in the UK and be able to successfully gain full Security Clearance.

Applications for our 2023/2024 Year in Industry Placements in Commercial and Purchasing are now open. Applications for Placements in Engineering and IT have now closed. Please click on the appropriate link below to apply.

Placement opportunities are available for an August intake each year in the following departments:

 

Engineering Departments

You will spend the duration of your Engineering Year in Industry programme based in one of the following departments. Although we cannot guarantee your placement will be in a specific department, if you have a particular preference for an area, you will be able to state this on your application form. 

  • Supplier Quality
    • The SQA team is responsible for ensuring that the product is delivered on time and in full to stringent specifications. Creating supplier improvement plans, assessing and approving of suppliers through audit, and generating corrective action reports. Using methods including root causes analysis and software including SAP.
  • Seat Test
    • Verify ejection seat performance requirements through testing of the full seat or parts. Preparing ejection seat test plans, risk assessments and readiness reviews leading onto evaluation of post-test data using reduction analysis and photographic data.
  • Mechanical Design
    • Ensuring that the customer legal and internal requirements are embodied in the product design, analysed and verified to ensure compliance. Project related engineering tasks including technical requirement analysis and generation of CAD models and engineering drawings that accurately represent the concept. 
  • Programmes
    • Working to develop programmes and provide support to customers for ejection and crashworthy seats. Key aspects include project planning, coordinating meetings, dealing with queries from stakeholders about our products, and reporting.
  • Reliability, Maintainability & Safety
    • Provide reliability, safety, and maintenance guidance during development and sustainment of the Martin-Baker product range. Project related engineering tasks including reliability analyses such as Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis and Reliability Block Diagrams, system safety analyses such as Hazard Analyses and Fault Tree Analysis, as well as hand-on assessments and report writing for technical documentation.
  • Environmental Test
    • As part of company design verification process, testing a diverse spectrum of seat components and non-ejection products. Evaluating captured test data through reduction analysis, interpretation of instrumentation data and high-speed video records to create reports for customers.
  • Quality
    • Working to improve the manufacturing process of our ejection seats and develop robust solutions to manufacturing problems. Investigate customer concerns using methods including root cause analysis, corrective and preventative measures.
  • Systems
    • Creating simulations of ejection seat tests and running in depth analytics on this for the likelihood of these. Project related engineering tasks including technical requirement analysis, feasibility and trade studies, and test matching.
  • Manufacturing Engineering
    • Determining the manufacturing methodology, supporting the Martin-Baker manufacturing process within a small batch environment. Analysing production time and material variances and investigating defects with a focus on continuous improvement of processes to benefit time, cost, or quality.
  • Stress Engineering
    • Determining the stresses and strains of materials and structures when subjected to the extreme forces during the expected product use. Playing a vital role in the mechanical engineering of the products, establishing the expected life of the seat systems based on fatigue analysis.
