Student Opportunities

From open days to placements, we're delighted to be able to offer a variety of opportunities for students.

Virtual Open Days

Are you studying a STEM subject and interested in using your degree in a career with a global, family owned company where every day, thousands of associates (employees) all work towards one purpose: A BETTER WORLD FOR PETS
A company that uses science and data to discover insights into pet health and wellbeing? One driven by principles and guided by our caring approach to science? 

If the answer is yes, and you'd like to find out more, then you're invited to attend one of our virtual open days.

Join us for an hour for a presentation followed by a Q&A session. You'll have the chance to meet a diverse range of associates across a variety of roles, find out what life is like at Waltham and see what roles your degree could lead you to.

Our virtual open days are held twice a year in around March and October. They are held via Microsoft teams and details will be advertised on this page closer to the time.

Placement Opportunities

When we can, we offer placement for Undergraduates and Postgraduates at the Institute. You will be able to experience what it is like to work in a global, privately-owned company, whilst being given responsibility, freedom, and a chance to enhance your scientific and business skills.

Unfortunately, we are not currently offering placements.
