When tackling epic projects that make a big difference to day-to-day life, we often have to get right down to microscopic detail and then work our way up. That’s what process engineers do. They figure out the implications of handling, producing and treating a wide range of process fluids for a wider range of applications. And in the process, they use their expertise to develop safe, innovative and robust solutions on an industrial scale. Over the course of two to four years, you’ll help things work better, by being a part of huge projects of all kinds.

WHERE YOU CAN JOIN US

See the list below to find out more about the areas of our business that are offering places on our Process Engineering programme for autumn 2017. 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.

CAVENDISH NUCLEARLearn more and apply

Cavendish Nuclear is the largest nuclear site manager and nuclear engineering support organisation in the UK. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Babcock International Group and we deliver complex projects across the span of nuclear energy. Our work ranges from the construction of brand new reactors and working-life extensions of existing nuclear plant to the safe decommissioning and remediation of legacy sites. Whether on our own or with one of our partners, we’ll be applying proven experience and trusted expertise to deliver complex programmes. We’re looking for graduates with a wide range of qualities, including high technical skills, good interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and adapt to new circumstances.

 

OUR LOCATIONS

You could be based in a number of locations. You’ll probably call Bristol, Leicester or Manchester home, but you could also work from client sites (including nuclear power stations, or Sellafield in Cumbria).

 

WE WORK ON A ROLLING APPLICATION BASIS AND THIS ROLE IS NOW CLOSED WHILST WE REASSESS DEMAND AND CURRENT APPLICATIONS. IF REQUIRED, WE WILL REOPEN, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.

MARINE AND TECHNOLOGY - PLYMOUTH Learn more and apply

We’re a strategic partner to the MOD and the Royal Navy, helping to improve efficiency at Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth. Our unique facilities and infrastructure mean that we can undertake 100% of submarine refits, as well as around 75% of UK surface fleet refits and 50% of fleet maintenance work. Half of the Royal Navy surface fleet is base-ported in Devonport, including Type 23 frigates, the Amphibious Assault fleet, and their hydrographic vessels. That’s the kind of epic engineering projects we take care of. To get involved in them, you’ll need to have a technical grounding in your relevant field, along with the ability to think on your feet and challenge yourself. And because we love to help promote STEM subjects amongst kids, it would be great if you were up for getting involved with our work in local schools.

 

OUR LOCATIONS

Our graduates are based in Devonport, Plymouth.

MARINE AND TECHNOLOGY – ROSYTHLearn more and apply

Rosyth might be the most unique of our sites within Marine and Technology. Nearly all our teams have a foothold here, so the range of work is huge. Right now, projects within the oil and gas, renewables and commercial marine sectors are making use of our unique mix of engineering, design and manufacturing skills. In the past year alone, we started work on over 70 subsea modules for BP and completed a complex vessel refit programme. Alongside these commercial projects, we also take on some warship support work and took care of over 50% of the detailed design for the UK’s new aircraft carriers, the largest and most powerful ships ever built for the Royal Navy. It’s epic stuff. Which is why we look for real team players with the right attitude and technical skills to get involved in projects like these. In return, you’ll get experience in five incredible sectors (naval and commercial marine, renewables, oil and gas, liquid gas equipment, and civil nuclear) and enjoy the support of a dedicated graduate management team. 

 

OUR LOCATIONS 

Your home base will be Rosyth, but your placements may also be in Edinburgh, Tyneside, Bristol, HM Naval Base Clyde or Devonport (Plymouth).

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

You’ll be up to your elbows in cutting-edge technology on this programme. You might be looking at long-term submarine projects or fast-paced projects working on commercial marine vessels. Or you might get involved in our civil nuclear work from solving complex decommissioning challenges to supporting next generation construction. The range is vast. And after you’ve got a taste of what we do, you’ll develop a specialism in a technical discipline.

WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT

You’ll get our full support on your road to becoming an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer – and a competitive starting salary of £27,000 - £30,000. That professional status will line you up nicely for a variety of positions with us after the programme. And while you’re working towards it, you can help us get school kids excited about becoming engineers too through our work with local schools.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll need a 2:2 MEng degree in Chemical Engineering (or similar). And because the programme is accredited by the IChemE, IMechE, IET and RINA, your degree should be accredited by one of them too. Our Rosyth business unit requires a 2:1 BEng (Hons) degree. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

Competitive Starting Salary £27K- £30K
£27K- £30K
