Read the email below – note that applications go to placements@elanco.com <mailto:placements@elanco.com> and start on 3rd August, in Hook, Hampshire.

Ruby on rails opportunity

contact Tom Roberts <mrtomrobs@gmail.com>


I’m an Alumnus for the Aber Comp-Sci department (2012) and I am wondering if the following project might be of interest for any current or former students looking to gain some experience in using Ruby on Rails for web development.

With the current COVID-19 lockdown, esports in various forms have had a big surge in interest and participation. I myself am a sim-racer and have specialised (if you can call my poor results record a specialisation!) in GT3 driving. In short, I have joined a sim-racing organisation called Redline Motorsport (RLM) as one of the senior administration staff for my particular platform. We have been able to put on several big events with real-life SRO GT Championship drivers taking part and are currently working towards partnerships with several big names in the real world of GT racing as well as PC hardware suppliers.

Our current website is under continual development but we are looking to start a membership service to run alongside our ‘publicly available’ event list for ‘premium’ members to take part in for a subscription fee. However, all of our staff are volunteers at present and our work capacity is already full.

We are offering an opportunity for a Ruby on Rails developer to come in and implement this membership service on our website with a possibility of further project work later on. This will be paid (and not just in ‘exposure’, actual money!) depending on experience and would certainly be a great example of work to put on a CV.

I hope this is the right place to come with this but apologies if not, we can provide further information about the project if anyone wants to get in contact.

Kind regards,

Tom Roberts


DeltaXML, Malvern

DeltaXML are a company who have students from us often, and they’ve been good placements. They would be conducting interviews over video (Skype or similar), due to the virus situation, so there would be no need to travel. The start date would also likely depend on the virus situation. So there is no need to be concerned about them wanting you to start before things have settled again.

You can do this one; all they need is Java, and an understanding of XML (we did some of that in CS15020).

Please let me know if you’re applying. It would be good to know what sort of numbers we have still seriously looking for this sort of placement.


Software Development Intern – DeltaXML

Job in Information Services at Aber Uni.

Just had this from Careers:

Fwd: We’ve just had a job go live on our jobs website for a Graduate Trainee in IT Networking, aimed at final year students due to graduate this year and starting 1 July. Do you have any other way of advertising this within careers/circulating to final year students, please?

The job reference number is IS.20.3155 and it’s closing on Sunday 3 May 2020.

Earth Observation/Software Development Industrial Placement – Plymouth Marine Laboratory

Dear students,

This job has just come in. PML are an organisation we used to regularly send IY students to, but they haven’t had any from us for a few years. So I very much hope that we can re-establish the connection. Note that this job will be of particular interest if you’re a Linux person! Many of you have the skills they need (Node.js is just JavaScript…), so go for it!

And it looks like a very interesting job too.


Good Afternoon,


I hope you will be able to help; we are recruiting for 3 industrial placements in software development/programming for use in satellite earth observation for use in marine conservation.


I would be grateful if you could circulate attached info to your students or post to your jobs boards/student information pages:



Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions


Kind regards

ETL Junior Data Consultant (Placement Year) – Bangor

Dear all,

I have just received this advert for an IY placement in Bangor ETL Bangor. They have come directly to me to ask for students, so that means they are actively wanting Aberystwyth Comp Sci students (not Bangor ones 😉 ).
One of you will most probably get this job. It also appears to be a very caring, ethical company, with flexible working. The pay isn’t the highest, but the benefits are good (and Bangor isn’t the most expensive place to live…)

If you apply, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know. I would like to establish a long-term relationship with this company, so I really hope a good few of you will apply.
