The company started as a project within a local engineering company, but has recently received substantial investment to develop its product from its current prototype stage to a saleable product.

We have a skilled team of experienced engineers and physicists in fields such as high vacuum engineering, high voltage, particle physics, 3D software, high speed electronics, etc… Your role would be to provide engineering support to these teams.

The company has taken on several YinI industry students in the past and understands how to make sure you get the best out of your placement, while providing real input to engineering challenges.


KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES (Description of Post):


We are looking for a YINI student to support a design and test project, including working with external research organisations.  This role will include some everyday tasks but a large amount of time will be spent on product design, running tests, analysing results, changing the design – an iterative design process.


You will have the opportunity for all of the following, depending on the stage of the project:

  • 2D/3D drawing using CAD
  • Carrying out design calculations
  • Analysing data and feeding back results to the rest of the team
  • Designing custom and bespoke machinery
  • Concept designs for customers
  • Attend design and review meetings
  • Practical testing of designs
  • Technical report writing
  • Assisting project manager with progress reporting
  • Works as an integral part of the design project team





You may be a pre-university or undergraduate and your attitude is more important than your actual or intended degree.  You will be able to use your own initiative and show you are a self-starter with good communication skills.


You will have a keen interest in design, be analytical and logical in your approach to tasks and attention to detail is very important.


Having your own car would be an advantage, but not essential.


If you would like to request that your CV be put forward for this placement opportunity please contact Antriana King at stating your interest, your full name and the vacancy reference.

Please note, you must be fully registered with The YINI scheme to apply.  See the YINI application page to complete an on-line application form if you are not already registered.
