Job Description

Added Scientific, a spin-out of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Additive Manufacturing, helps companies research and implement AM, providing technical services including material development, process optimisation, training and strategy. Although we’re a start-up, we have gained a reputation for being able to do some very clever things and we’re growing rapidly. We apply our research expertise to develop future products and technologies for our customers, who are world-leading blue-chip companies.

We’re looking to recruit a summer intern to support us on consultancy projects. The role will involve market research and industry analysis; we need someone who can collate information, interpret data and see beyond the hype. Our customers look to us to provide insight into the AM industry that is based on evidence and experience. A good understanding of manufacturing and engineering considerations is important, as is an ability to critically evaluate information and see the bigger picture.

If you fit the below criteria and want to experience working for a start-up in a cutting-edge industry, we’d love to hear from you. We offer an excellent salary and we’re located just across the road from the University on the Nottingham Science Park, where we have a shiny new office and lab facility. Send your CV to and, if we think you’d be a good fit, we’ll invite you over for a chat.

Essential Attributes
  • Currently studying for an MEng in a related subject, such as Product Design, Manufacturing Engineering or Mechanical Engineering (First or high 2:1 result in previous semester)
  • Comfortable sourcing, analysing and critically evaluating data
  • A self-starting individual, who enjoys having a significant degree of autonomy
Desirable Attributes
  • Someone who has an interest in the economic and societal impact of future technologies
  • Available to work in Nottingham for a minimum of 10 weeks over the summer

Perks of working here

  • Access to state-of-the-art equipment

    We’re at the forefront of Additive Manufacturing, and with one of the most comprehensive laboratories, have access to a wide range of Additive Manufacturing equipment.

  • International Travel

    Many of our clients are overseas, so you’ll have plenty of chance to travel to their offices to ensure we’re giving them the best service possible.

  • Ongoing training

    Additive Manufacturing is constantly evolving, and you’ll be kept up-to-speed on the latest changes in the sector in industry-standard training from our experts.

  • In-office clubs & social activities

    Whether you’re interested in joining our in-office yoga group, or just fancy joining us for drinks each week, we love socialising outside of the office as well.

  • Control your own schedule

    We know that different people work in different ways - that’s why we give you autonomy over your own working hours, so you work when is best for you.
