We are global market leaders within embedded encryption solutions which is forged by decades of Cryptographic engineering accomplishments. We protect highly sensitive information, working with nations worldwide to help ensure their information is secure. Our engineers work on the most difficult cybersecurity challenges to protect our national security and critical infrastructure; we strive to protect what matters.

Why Join our Graduate Scheme?

  • We are seeking talented graduates for our September 2024 intake with a passion for cyber-security and engineering with an inquisitive mind, an intrinsic interest in innovation, enthusiasm for solving complex technical engineering problems, and achieving success through teamwork. You will be provided with a unique experience to work on a range of projects from early inception to delivery in addition to early research activities pathfinding future crypto solutions.
  • The 2-year graduate programme is structured upon four rotations, nominally 6 months duration, with exposure to a variety of key engineering disciplines including Systems, Software, Electronics, FPGA and Environmental Test Engineering as well as other departments outside of engineering. Your home discipline will be within Hardware Engineering where you will begin and end your graduate journey.
  • After completion of the two-year scheme, you are guaranteed a position at Ultra I&C Cyber within the Hardware engineering function located in Maidenhead, our new state-of-the-art Cyber Centre of Excellence.
