To help you focus and understand the opportunities you could take, we run a one-year automotive placement programme designed to give you an insight into what working at Bentley is really like, and a stepping stone to your future career.

Our Undergraduate Placement Programme is designed for University students on courses that encourage you to spend 12 months in industry.

We’ll help you develop your knowledge, technical and interpersonal skills over the year.and you can choose from a broad selection of areas within Bentley to get experience in a real business. It’s a great first step to starting a career at Bentley.

Our Bentley internship programme also offers work placements for three to nine months. It’s the perfect way to get a taste of how we work. On our automotive internship you’ll gain experience across all areas of the business on real projects.
