Job description

Bombardier is a project orientated business. We deliver unique products and services to well known customers with increasing complexity. Project Management combines many different specialities, each of which contributes to the flawless execution of our projects to satisfy our customers.

At Bombardier, we see trains as more than a mode of transport. Ours is a challenging, innovative, important industry, and we see trains as the future of eco-friendly travel; as outstanding examples of design; and as exceptional feats of engineering. They're also highly complex projects that need brilliant people to bring them to life and keep them running smoothly.

As a graduate within project management you will have the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills as you immerse yourself in the project management life cycle.

You will join a two year intensive training programme with a series of placements around the business and within the PM community, providing a firm foundation in the application of Project Management knowledge, skills, tool and techniques. Placements typically include: Bids (how we win work), commercial (how we manage our contracts, and project costs) and operations (how we meet the commitments made to the customer).

On the job learning is complemented by a modular personal development programme. Supported by a mentor you will work towards gaining a relevant professional qualification.

Joining the team in Derby will mean working on real assignments and gaining hands-on experience with responsibility from day one. You will have a chance to build a personal network within the wider business in order to develop overall business awareness, share best practice and foster cross functional working.
