Engineering Graduate

Job description

From manufacturing quality products both efficiently and safely, to ensuring delivery on time to our customers, the Engineering function in our ABF Grocery businesses is vital. We are looking for people who have a real passion for engineering and who want to understand how the different strands of this function impact the workplace.

Over this 24-month graduate programme you will gain hands-on experience of production, learn about the processes and machinery used in manufacturing our products, spend time on the production line, solve product line breakdown problems as well as get involved in on-going maintenance.

You will also gain experience by working in the following areas:

  • Specifying and installing equipment
  • Developing and applying maintenance techniques
  • Leading teams of engineering technicians
  • Interfacing with all functions across the business at all levels

This programme is designed to develop future engineering leaders in our business. We would expect you to come off our programme into an Engineering Manager position but our commitment to you goes beyond the graduate scheme. We see this as the first step in your ongoing career within engineering at ABF and anticipate you reaching a site engineering position within a further four years.

You will be offered the opportunity to become a Chartered Engineer on our programme and will receive extensive training, combining practical technical engineering skills with core management training.
