Make an impact on real projects in unexpected ways.

About DSTL

We harness science and technology to protect our nation – bringing together the best people with the best ideas, and applying them in unexpected ways. Because we provide the UK government with specialist science and technology research, advice and analysis, what we do is often sensitive or international in nature. Much is operationally critical and has the potential to save many lives. All of it is incredible.

Together with other brilliant organisations around the country and abroad, we develop battle-winning technologies, and support UK operations now and into the future. In our Platform Systems Division, we strengthen and protect our armed forces through ground breaking technical research. It means safeguarding armoured vehicles, warships and aircraft against the harshest combat environments – and providing the most advanced weapon capabilities. Crucially, we ensure all this technology and equipment across the military operate together seamlessly.

About the role

On this two-year development scheme, you’ll have placements in lots of different teams, gaining a thorough understanding of what we do. So you’ll get involved in a wide range of projects to solve real problems, and deliver scientific, analytical, and engineering solutions. This’ll see you produce bespoke tools, models and techniques, as well as working on trials outside the office or in a lab. It’s about being creative, chasing innovations, and pushing technology to its limits.

About you

We’re looking for talented graduates with degrees in Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or Computer Science. You’ll embrace complex challenges, and enjoy finding innovative ways around problems. Join us and work on one-off projects in a truly unique, exciting, and inspiring environment.
