Environment Graduate Scheme Deeside 2024
The Engine Plant based in Deeside, North Wales is a high-tech manufacturing facility supplying premium quality hybrid engines to Toyota vehicle plants around the world with ambitions for the future. We are a compact organisation in which office members work alongside their manufacturing colleagues.
Your time here
Here at Toyota, we develop members fit for both now and the future, focusing on both personal and professional development. Over the two-year scheme, you'll get to see the breadth of our business, receiving responsibility that will stretch your problem-solving skills and introduce you to people at all levels. It will be a challenging scheme consistently testing your abilities, but equally you’ll receive plenty of support from your mentor, managers, and colleagues.
Working within our Facilities and Environmental Engineering team, you will be involved in all aspects of environmental compliance; reporting (both internally and to external bodies) and tracking energy, emissions, and waste streams to ensure best practice. You will also be involved in developing solutions to reduce reliance on fossil fuels within our processes in order support our transition to Net Zero manufacturing.
Previous Trainee Specialist (Graduate) projects
- Environmental reporting
- Carbon neutral roadmap and energy reduction projects
- Harmony with nature and biodiversity improvement projects
All graduates will take part in six weeks of line training. This will mean that for those six weeks you will work on an area where we build the cars down on the shop floor.
Although tough, this experience is extremely rewarding and interesting and gives you a real hands-on insight into what Toyota Manufacturing is all about. We believe this experience is crucial for your personal development and rather unique to our company.
We place great emphasis on learning by doing - usually through structured, on-the-job training. Our graduate programme is assessed and designed to help you reach the standard needed to move into a specialist/engineer position at the end of the 2-year programme.
What we look for
We are looking for someone with a keen interest in the environment, with a working knowledge of natural cycles, pollution sources, pathways and receptors. An understanding of environmental management is also required (an IEMA certificate in Environmental Management or equivalent is desirable but not essential).
The ideal candidate will be familiar with EMS and environmental decision making/reporting to be able to apply environmental legislation to the manufacturing plant to support the journey to Net Zero.
Alongside having a consistently strong academic record, with a minimum 2:1 predicted degree result*, we are looking for people who actively want to learn from others and are motivated to take on new challenges with a positive mindset.
We believe that there's always a better way, therefore if you share our values and thrive on analysing problems from different angles to develop solutions, you could go a long way with us. Similarly, taking a practical approach to your work is important – you will need to be as comfortable on the shop floor as you are in the office.
