Work Experience and University Placements

Southern Testing are proud supporters of local education in science and engineering at all levels. Not only does it reinforce our connection with the communities in the region we serve, but we believe it’s in private industry’s own best interest to support new generations of scientists and engineers. We have been providing work experience and placements through our links with the local community, schools, colleges and universities for over 40 years. This normally ranges from a few weeks work experience through to covering college or university holiday periods. You will need to send us a covering letter detailing you experience and explaining why you would like to take up a placement with us along with your CV. Please also state which dates you are available to work. We get lots of requests so it’s worth getting your application in early.

Southern Testing are continuing to work through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, including carrying out site work where it is safe to do so.

The Government have given express support to the Construction sector and have issued specific guidance for working on site. The Construction Leadership Council have also issued guidance.

We have revised our travelling and working practices to ensure that our staff are protected, and to meet the particular requirements of the guidance as well as our own risk assessments. The guidance and our working practices are under constant review.

Most site investigation work can be undertaken safely under the current restrictions.

We are committed to helping all our clients, old and new, during this difficult time. Should you have any site investigation requirements, or wish to discuss a particular project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
