We are seeking exceptional Graduate Engineers in electrical / electronic, mechanical, mechatronics, control, software, and systems engineering disciplines to join our dynamic Graduate Development & Industrial Integration Programme – and which plays a crucial role in our internal talent development strategy. Our Programme’s mission is to empower you to grow and take ownership for your continuous professional development. We enable you to become an agile, resilient, and highly skilled Engineer who can deliver existing and future projects.


The Graduate Engineer Programme

2 Year, engineering focussed, experiential, learning, development, and implementation programme covering five key areas:

  1. Interdepartmental rotations including Design, Analysis, Controls, Development, Build & Test
  2. Self-determined group project
  3. Interpersonal skills, competency development and implementation
  4. Opportunity to experience working across multi-site and international performance units
  5. Local and regional involvement in the promotion of Engineering through STEM activates


From day 1, we will guide you through the next 24 months, providing opportunities at every turn for you to excel and demonstrate what you can do. We will give you help, support, encouragement, and guidance as you move through the programme. But it’s not all going to be laid out in front of you. The reality of a competitive industry means that we must search for every solution, drive for every opportunity to do things better, faster, more efficiently, with increased productivity, quality and most importantly, customer satisfaction. Having been selected for this programme, you will have the drive, dedication, resilience, and downright determination, to be the best you can be.


Your progress will be monitored regularly, and you will be assigned a mentor and coach, who will oversee your progress, what you’re doing, what you’ve achieved and where any help, guidance or support may be required.

Ultimately, we want you to be successful and we will support you to achieve relevant Chartered status. In fact, this programme is designed with success in mind, not only for you, but for the business, and our customers.
