It’s all go at Automated Intelligence. After a period of expansion, this year saw the highest annual intake of placement students ever.

A host of new faces were welcomed to the Belfast Head Office as part of the engineering and services teams including nine placement students. This marks not just the success of our placement scheme but ambitious growth within the company as a whole.

During their time at AI, each student is offered the chance to get involved in some of the biggest and most important projects. This allows them to gain valuable experience for a future career in the tech industry as well as working in a fast-paced work environment.

Speaking about why working with placement students has become so important at AI, Kerry Boden (HR Manager) said;

“At AI we always factor in the recruitment of placement students in our resource planning as they form such a vital part of our workforce, being involved in meaningful and challenging work from the outset.”

“This not only benefits AI as a company as we continue to grow and innovate, but also gives each student valuable experience to apply to their studies and future careers. Year on year the exceptional level of technical knowledge and professionalism the students show increases and we are delighted when graduate job offers are accepted at the end of the year and we can welcome students back as permanent employees.”

At Automated Intelligence we recognise the importance of nurturing and promoting local talent. Which is why we work with a range of higher education institutions, including Queen’s University and the University of Ulster, to find successful placement students.

The strength of tech talent in Northern Ireland cannot be underestimated, which is why we are proud that so many of our placement students choose AI as the starting point in their successful post-graduate careers.
