Graduate Opportunities

If you want the best start to your career in engineering, come and join our GATES scheme (Graduates and Training Engineering Solutions). From day one, you will work on challenging and exciting projects.

Our GATES programme is exceptional. We have created the optimum structure for personal development which combines vocational on-the-job training with technical coaching to suit individual needs. Our internal scheme outline supports and guides our graduates through the process of proving their competency in the 16 categories set by the Engineering Council.

You will be involved in problem-solving and developing new and innovative solutions, working with some of the best-in-class engineers in the industry.

We select a small number of summer work experience students each year and hire a selection of qualified graduates from the best engineering universities across the UK. We run our graduate scheme every year and we open for application submissions around March of each year, shortlist and interview in June, to then have our new staff join between July and September.
