Labman Work Experience

Work Experience at Labman is a hands-on, full-on experience. You will be entrusted with responsibility, expected to take charge of your work and encouraged to take a wider interest in the operation of the company as a whole.

Don’t worry though, you won’t be thrown in at the deep end, and expected to fend for yourself – our senior engineers will provide you with mentoring and guidance in every area of the business to give you a solid grasp and understanding of Labman and the work you’ll be doing.

Disciplines at Labman

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical design and manufacturing is at the heart of most of Labman’s projects. In this area, you will be working in Labman’s dedicated workshop machining parts for our robots or assembling these parts on the robots themselves. No two days are the same with work experience at Labman.

Electrical/Electronic Engineering

Our electrical engineers make the Labman robots tick. You may be learning what it takes to build a rittal box from scratch, or helping to solve a wiring diagram problem with one of our senior electrical engineers. As with any role at Labman, you'll need to keep an eye on every discipline though, as they're all interlinked.

Software Engineering

Love computers? Love gaming? Love code? Being a Labman software engineer is an incredible job that allows you to get your hands on some amazing technology, including advanced robotic systems, VR, and more. During your work experience you may be helping to develop software that is used by companies all over the world to run our robotic systems.

Entry Requirements

We don’t have any specific requirements, in terms of grades, as we’d rather judge a person based on their enthusiasm and positive attitude to working here. Having said that, if you think of yourself as pretty good with science or maths, you’ll likely find things easier at Labman.

We are looking for those who have an active interest with how things work. Are you always tinkering and taking things to bits? Do you have a few projects on the go with an Arduino or Raspberry Pi? Have you always been teaching yourself more code and making your own apps? If so this apprenticeship could be for you.

What We’re Offering

A great and unique team environment in which you can begin your career with a work experience role that is full of optimism and enthusiasm.

The chance to work in our award-winning, custom-built headquarters, complete with climbing wall, go-karts, and a squash court.

The opportunity to work in the fantastic area of Teesside - the world’s best kept secret. Labman HQ is located on the outskirts of the Georgian Market town of Stokesley - a stone’s throw from the breath-taking East Coast and the Yorkshire moors and yet only 90 minutes from the Lake District and 2 ½ hours to London by train. If you’re local, you know all this. If you’re not, then keep it to yourself; we like to keep the 'grim up north’ façade going as it helps keep the numbers down.
