Our E3 Summer placements, often take part in our DF&PD Division, which is located in Manchester. Siemens have been in Manchester since 1980's when they acquired the land in the south of the city. At that time the area did not have a great reputation, but the keys to success were there: a great connection to the airport and city centre together with an ambitious local Council. .
Manchester is widely recognised as the second most commercially important city in the UK. It is the centre of what is known in the UK as the "Northern Powerhouse", a UK Government project to link the most historically important northern industrial cities of the UK, including Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds and Hull and create a single economic entity; a "northern London" so to speak.
