4 Reasons to be an Intern at Createc

Every summer we welcome a selection of students into our team at Createc for an internship to remember. It’s a great opportunity for students to learn new things and gain experience, whilst also making an impact on real-world projects. There are many reasons to take on the challenge of an internship with us, but here are the top four, as chosen by our people:

  1. You love challenging your capabilities

Make no mistake, an internship with us will challenge your technical and theoretical capabilities for the better. Our projects are cutting-edge and what we do has never been done before, so there’s always something interesting to learn and lots to do. We’ll give you time, support and advice as you learn with us, but your outcomes will be your own.

Learning wise, it has been very valuable. I’ve certainly got a lot better at C++, practically and theoretically, in the last 10 weeks. I really wanted to leave my mark on a company and with Createc, I was able to do that.
  1. You want experience in a commercial setting

We’re into real R&D, but everything we do has a commercial purpose and real-world functionality. If you want to gain experience outside of a University but still take a research-led approach, Createc might be the place for you. Our 2019 interns were vital in helping us prepare for, set up and run a demonstration for our largest project, Elephants to Ants, which aims to transform Nuclear Decommissioning efforts across the world by taking a radical new approach.

Createc was the only one of my internship offers outside of a university environment, which is why I chose it. I got exposure to things I would never have done through my course or even an alternative company.
  1. You want to work in a close-knit, high-performance team

Our teams are small, agile and great fun. We’re really proud that our employees think of each other as more than just colleagues, they’re friends. As an Intern at Createc, you’re one of us and you’ll feel exactly that. From helping out to meet a deadline, to always being on hand to share ideas, learnings and advice, we really do rely on each other. We’ll expect you to share these values too, but if you do, you’ll be rewarded by spending your time with some exceptionally talented, bright and lovely individuals who are leading in their fields.

I would describe Createc’s people as dedicated. Everyone gets really into a project and they hold the success of it as their own success. People really strive to push themselves for high quality.
  1. You want to create awesome technologies

Our projects in robotics and computer imaging are cool by anyone’s standards. During your internship with us, you won’t just be helping out or making tea. You’ll be given a real a project to get stuck into and work with the guidance of our team to build new and exciting technologies. From nuclear decommissioning to crowd safety, our products make the world a better place. To find out more about the experience of one 2019 intern, read Chloe’s Story, here.

During the project, my main output was creating a robot with one head and one hand. I had lots of help, but it was my responsibility to build it and make it work and I wrote the majority of the code. The highlight for me was the satisfaction of seeing it all come together and work at the end.
