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. What’s not in doubt is that 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 £29k - £31k.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

A 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree is vital. And because the programme is accredited by the IMechE, IET, RINA, IChemE and IMarEST, it is desirable that your degree is accredited by one of those institutions too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

Competitive Starting Salary £29K- £31K
