The Satellite Applications Catapult actively supports secondments through the exchange of people, both in and out of Catapult activities. This includes Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) schemes, undergraduate placements, sponsored PhDs and apprenticeships, as well as traditional secondments.
If you work within the academic community, we offer:
We encourage industry experts to work with us to carry out specific tasks over a pre-agreed period of time, in order to enhance knowledge exchange and promote industry partnerships.
We offer Catapult staff short-term secondments as a professional development opportunity. Usually this involves working in a different department, office or external organisation, then returning to their normal post once the secondment period has ended.
We also enable our employees to work on collaborative projects or support external companies where there is a requirement for resources that match their skills and experience. This further supports the transfer of industry-focused skills and expertise into the Space sector knowledge base.
If you are interested in a secondment opportunity, either for yourself or for a member of your team, or you would like someone within the Catapult to work with your organisation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
