Job Description

Designing world-leading power systems is one thing. Actually seeing them through to fruition is something else entirely. And that is where our Manufacturing Engineering team comes in. Join our Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Development Programme, and you will have a vital role to play in delivering our customer promises, and achieving the most exacting standards. Life in this team is about continually developing processes, acquiring capabilities and exploiting technologies that will keep us at the forefront of global manufacturing. Drawing on your practical mind-set and relentlessly inquisitive nature, you will help to transform ideas into physical products, and our significant order book into profitable reality. This is game-changing work that you can be genuinely proud of.

The Programme

Our Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Development Programme will prepare you for a career like no other. You will be based in one of our businesses, so you can expect to gain an end-to-end knowledge of manufacturing engineering in Civil and Defence Aerospace, Nuclear, Marine or Power Systems. That knowledge will be gained as you work on live projects during three four-month placements in capability acquisition, product introduction and continuous improvement. In addition to these placements you will partner with your fellow graduates to deliver your own improvement project. Along the way, you will undertake comprehensive training and be supported by a line manager, career coach and your own development consultant.

What You Will Do

Manufacturing Engineering places a big focus on teamwork. So you can expect to collaborate with great minds in a fast-paced, high-tech environment. You could take on real responsibility as you introduce major pieces of equipment, develop efficiency-improving manufacturing systems or tackle continuity threats. Or you could be integrating activity for manufacturing launch plans, helping our suppliers develop more efficient methodologies and introducing new materials specifications. It is complex and challenging work that will get your career off to a great start.

What You Will Get

Salaries vary by location
Paid holiday, including bank holidays (pro rata)
International environment
Great support from managers and peers
Leisure and social activities
Other rewards and benefits vary by location


Technical abilities are a must, so in terms of your academic background, you will either have or be on course for a 2:1 degree, or equivalent qualification in Engineering. You should be a great team player too, with excellent communication skills, real flexibility and plenty of initiative. Finally, your inquiring mind and resourceful approach means you will relish the opportunity to solve complex problems and share your ideas.
