Environmental and Building Services Engineering Graduate

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

We don’t build cars; we enable cars to be built! Combining technical know-how with hands-on expertise, our Environmental and Building Services engineers define the processes and facilities needed to achieve production objectives. From procuring and installing innovative solutions to maintain environmental compliance, maximise the availability of site services to main line Production shops, identify and implement energy saving initiatives, to root cause analysis and resolving site infrastructure and building service issues, we support all areas of the manufacturing operation, ensuring seamless production of over 500,000 cars every year. Environmental and Building Services Engineering is a key function offering a full spectrum of roles covering Mechanical, Electrical (LV and HV), Environmental, Gas and HVAC Engineering.

We combine practical engineering with project coordination using cross-functional teamwork. Truly aligned with the production process, engineers enjoy a mixture of desk-based work such as CAD & specification writing alongside real-world activities such as line trials, and equipment buy off. We continually question methods, seek areas to improve and identify creative alternatives.

As with all new graduates, you will spend your first few weeks working on the production line, this experience is vital in giving you a firm understanding of our business. Thereafter, you will be given exposure to other functions before being assigned to a team of Estates and Environmental engineers where you will develop specialised knowledge within a particular area. Initiative, confidence and a pro-active approach are essential qualities in our engineers, because you are not just responding to issues, you are looking for areas to improve, finding out how systems can operate to maximum efficiency, questioning methods and suggesting creative alternatives. With our exceptional training and development (including support to study for Chartered Engineer status), the guidance of experienced engineers, and your own natural ability, you’ll find yourself meeting challenges head on and dealing with all situations that arise.

Your responsibilities will be dependent on which section of the Engineering Department you will work in. These include:

  • Environmental compliance
  • Energy management
  • Legislation compliance
  • Legionella control
  • Carbon Neutral implementation
  • Nissan Green Programme (NGP)
  • Quality Improvement
  • Cost Reduction
  • Facility Efficiency Improvements
  • Strategic Planning
  • Technical Support
  • Health and Safety
