Newry testing firm offering intern and grad places for NI's young talent

  • Newry-based testing company, Resonate Testing Ltd is offering a number of intern and graduate opportunities for young talent throughout Northern Ireland.

    The company, which specialises in environmental and climatic testing and certifications services, was established in 2015 and provides services to the UK, Ireland and other areas round the globe.

    Newry student, Méabh McMahon, who is studying Aero-Mechanical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, was one such student who recently completed a placement with the firm.

    She said: “My time at Resonate Testing Ltd gave me the opportunity to put the theoretical experience that I learnt at University into practice and apply it to real world test items. I was given the opportunity to assist in the testing on customers’ parts and products, as well as helping with additions, analysis and support of the company’s quality management systems.

    “One of the main achievements for me was producing high quality reports for customers, explaining and backing up what was completed, which is a critical part of the business. I worked on a range of reports for various sectors including aerospace and telecommunications, as well as for military equipment and consumer goods, so there was a lot of multi-industry experience and exposure.

    “This involvement has made me more confident in both my technical and practical skills and I’m looking forward to using the knowledge in my final year of University and to help me in my career thereafter.”

    Olivia, also from Newry, recently graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a degree in Aerospace Engineering.

    Managing director, Tom Mallon said, “Here at Resonate Testing Ltd, we are passionate about developing young people and helping to teach them the ‘tricks of the trade’.

    “Sometimes the practical experience can make the difference in a good and a great engineer! We have had some fantastic talent come through our doors who we are sure will go on to carve successful careers.”
