Electrical and Electronic Engineering is everywhere. From fitting-out advanced warship systems to designing cutting-edge augmented reality products, we provide our customers with better capability, reliability and availability for their critical assets. You’ll spend between two to four years getting involved in anything from defence engineering to complex nuclear projects.
Main purpose of role
Working in a discipline of such fundamental importance means that you could work on anything. You could be on the team designing submarines, refitting warships, or helping to build the UK’s next generation of nuclear power plants. The possibilities are endless. 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 may even find yourself managing projects and leading your own team.
This role is based at Devonport Royal Dockyard, which is located in the vibrant city of Plymouth, Devon in the south west of England. Plymouth is a city with a long and proud military history and more than its fair share of heritage. There is something for everyone here; from a superb coastline if you are a water sports enthusiast or Dartmoor National Park if you enjoy hiking and climbing, or simply enjoy the fantastic scenery. For a great night out, we have the historic Barbican area with its wide variety of bars, clubs and restaurants.
