The BGS offers students the chance to work with our scientists and support staff to provide them with experience in the workplace. We offer a limited number of placements at our Keyworth, Edinburgh, Wallingford and Cardiff sites over the course of a year. Please note Cardiff office is suspending placements for the rest of 2017.
