Are you a looking for an industrial placement as part of your sandwich degree at University?

Are you studying towards a life science degree?

Do you enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and a being part of a team?

If you answered yes to all the above, then join us on a 12-month industrial placement as an intern and become part of a rapidly expanding biotech organisation while gaining highly valuable industry experience!

You’ll also troubleshoot cross-departmental issues, transport queries and vendor problems that could impact customer delivery. We provide a world class service to our customers and so it is important that we put them first in everything we do!

Most importantly, you will gain highly valuable exposure to a fast-paced and streamlined logistics department within a globally recognised biotech organisation. As a result, you will develop skills that are highly valued in the workplace such as teamwork, organisation and problem-solving.


What our interns say:

For me, working at Abcam has given me a whole new insight into the variety of responsibilities performed on a day to day basis in a large-scale bioscience industry. The Logistics community, and Abcam as a whole, is friendly and ambitious, and innovation is always key to this constantly evolving company. Within my role as an industrial placement student in Lab logistics, I have been exposed to numerous departments, such as supply chain and Sci QC, which allows better understanding of each departments contribution to the company. I think this has been the most rewarding aspect of my placement year.
