Mechanical Engineering Graduate Programme

Job description

Mechanical Engineering is not one area, but many. Over the course of two to four years, you’ll get to experience the breadth of our work. You might be tackling submarine design projects or warship refits. Equally, you might be working on complex marine projects, fleet maintenance or nuclear programmes. The possibilities are incredibly varied.

Where you can join us

Places on our Mechanical Engineering graduate programme for Autumn 2019 are available within our marine sectors. 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

You could work in mechanical design: producing drawings and working with manufacturers, suppliers and subcontractors right through to manufacture, installation and decommissioning. Equally, you could work on analysis and problem solving for existing equipment or systems. There will be plenty of onsite work (e.g. implementing designs, finding solutions to installation issues, liaising with designers and office-based engineers). You’ll also get involved in project management too: engaging with stakeholders, planning delivery and ensuring projects run to budget and programme.

What you'll get out of it

You’ll get a proper overview of what we do, which will help you figure out what you love and what you’re good at. We’ll also support you every step of the way on your path to becoming an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer – with a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k.*

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.

What we are looking for

You’ll need to satisfy the Ministry of Defence’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

Qualifications

A 2:2 BEng (hons) degree is vital. And because the programme is accredited by the IMechE, IET, RINA, IChemE and IMarEST, your degree will need to be accredited by one of those institutions too.

Accepted degree subjects

  • mechanical engineering
