This programme will see you build your knowledge of all parts of our Generation and Nuclear New Build business, with support and training to take care of every aspect of your professional and personal development.

You will be aware of the role that you will be taking up permanently in the organisation ahead of joining the graduate scheme. We will work with you to identify the department that best suits your skills and interest areas, and also the location where you will be based.

Once you get started you will spend the first 3 months of your graduate scheme based at your home location, getting to know your new team. This time will be interspersed with periods of residential training at our training centre near Gloucester. The next 8 months of your programme will be spent rotating around our Central Technical Organisation, Station Engineering, Operations, Maintenance and Technical & Safety functions, so you'll see how everything fits together. During this time you will have the support of your line manager, a recent graduate buddy and a qualified Mechanical Engineering technical mentor.

When you've completed your initial 11 months' training, you'll spend the final 5 months of the programme back in your home department, getting more experience and developing your skills ready to take on your permanent role. Once this period is complete you will take up a substantive role within this business area.

By the end of it, you'll be ready to embark on a range of uniquely rewarding Mechanical Engineering careers - and well on the way to Chartership with the IME.

We're proud to say this Graduate Programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IME) - a valuable seal of approval for your pathway to becoming a Chartered Mechanical Engineer.

You'll need a 2:1 Bachelor's Degree or a 2:2 Postgraduate Degree in Mechanical Engineering or an associated subject. Willingness to relocate as required. Desire to learn and develop your skills.
