Here at the Satellite Applications Catapult, we have this fantastic, future career moulding opportunity for an intern with a flair for space and business! The Small Satellites team is looking to take on a Student Placement for one year to offer an opportunity to work with rocket scientists in one of the fastest growing space sectors.
Small satellites offer a complementary alternative to larger satellites by providing cheaper, more frequent and up to date data, opening new markets for satellite applications. We want you to assist with business analysis to monitor and maintain database of current and planned space assets and capabilities. We promise not to stop there! We will do our best to flex around your academic and professional ambitions within the space sector and offer a truly unique experience to enhance your future prospects and get a taste for what it would be like to be part of an innovative and pioneering organisation.
Not convinced? Listen to what Nick, our Intern, has to say about our culture and his experience:
The Catapult maintains an internal market intelligence portfolio to assist in understanding the small satellite market for strategic and corporate support purposes. This data is collated from multiple sources that are fragmented and not easily exploitable. Furthermore, the diverse and responsive nature of the space sector, in particular the “New Space” movement, results in changes in the related economics and technologies on a basis more regular than annual reports can address.
On joining this 12-month placement, you will be contributing to this on-going work activity, where you will be required to quickly integrate with the Small Satellite Missions and Business Modelling teams and begin to contribute straight away.
Typical day-to-day activities are likely to include:
This role will give you experience in the cutting edge of the UK commercial space sector, engaging with and in proximity to a cross-cutting range of organizations of differing sizes and maturity, covering multiple industry sectors and representing many elements of the satellite missions and services value chain.
This is an exceptional opportunity for someone interested in working in the space sector in a less traditional role that is not wholly focused on technical and engineering disciplines.
