Manufacturing Engineering Internship Programme

31st March 2017


On our Manufacturing Engineering Internship Programme you will be assigned to one of our manufacturing facilities. Whether you are working for us in aerospace, nuclear or marine, you can look forward to undertaking one or two major projects as a part of our talented team. You will be working in one or more of capability acquisition, product introduction or continuous improvement, so you will gain a real insight into how we work around the manufacturing lifecycle. Along the way, you will learn from some true experts and be taught valuable skills. And if you perform well, you may be invited to join our graduate programme - a fantastic start to a career with one of the world's most prestigious global companies.

What you will do

The projects you undertake will vary depending on business need and where you are based. You could be part of a team improving a manufacturing process, or get involved in developing new technology to help introduce a new product into manufacture. You may also get the chance to work in central teams where you will help transform the way we undertake manufacturing engineering across all of our facilities. The opportunity to make an impact, and a good impression, is huge. 

What you will get

  • £17,850 pa (pro rata) 
  • Bonus schemes
  • Financial assistance for additional study
  • A competitive pension
  • Leisure facilities and numerous sports societies

Who we are

Our high-performance, integrated power solutions are at the cutting edge of technology. From powering huge commercial vessels to nuclear submarines, supersonic fighter jets to highly efficient passenger planes, or rail locomotives to luxury yachts, we go above and beyond to create better. And it's all thanks to our people.

What you will need:

We are looking for people who will be happy to share their ideas about how we can do things even better, so we will want to see great communication skills developed through well-rounded life experience - academically, socially and in any previous work situations. Your pre-university academic record will be strong too, with A-levels (or equivalent) at grade B or above in Maths and Physics or Chemistry. You should also be on course to achieve at least a 2:1 MEng or MSc degree, or a minimum of 2:1 at bachelor's degree level, or equivalent. Flexibility is important too, as you could be based at any of our sites.
