Electrical and Electronic Engineering Graduate Programme


Job description

Electrical and electronic engineering is everywhere. Transport networks. Renewable energy. Even ventilation. You name it, there’s an electrical system in it. We take care of those systems for our clients’ most important products and services. You’ll spend between two and four years getting involved in anything from oil and gas to submarine projects.

Where you can join us
Places on our Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our marine (Clyde), marine (Plymouth or Keynsham [Bristol]). But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing
The possibilities are many and varied. You may be helping to modernise the UK’s rail networks, or designing cutting-edge structures for the nuclear industry. We do a lot for the Ministry of Defence, which offers a whole world of different opportunities all by itself. You might even work with the Royal Navy to adapt the UK’s dockyard services to meet the demands of a modern naval fleet. Whatever you work on, you can be sure you’ll be making a real difference to everyday life in the UK.

Day-to-day, you could find yourself working on electrical power distribution or electrical control and instrumentation involving both analogue and digital systems. Our graduates get involved in everything from concept design and AutoCAD layouts to testing, installation, commissioning and handover to clients. You’ll be working within multidisciplinary teams, investigating solutions to engineering problems. You may also find yourself managing projects and leading your own team.

What you'll get out of it
This is a great programme to give you a full overview of what we’re about. You’ll see how important the projects we work on are, and how important electrical and electronic engineers like you are to our projects. You’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £28k-£30k* and we’ll be completely behind you as you work towards Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status.

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.

Qualifications and experience requirements

A 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree in a related subject area (e.g. electrical and electronic engineering) that is accredited by the IET is vital.

For our Marine (Plymouth and Bristol) programmes, we also accept relevant degrees in systems, computing or IT disciplines.
