Your career development

Building a career with us provides great opportunities to develop your technical skills, lead projects for clients and develop new business. Many of our team enjoy balancing a mixture of each.

Whether you are a graduate or an experienced professional we can help you to take your career to the next level.


If you join us as a graduate this may well be your first job in engineering. We provide an excellent grounding and a broad experience including:

  • Instant real work where you learn on the job
  • Support each step of the way
  • Lots of opportunities for responsibility
  • A huge amount of variety
  • Regular reviews with progressive goals and objectives to help you grow
  • Training which fits your career development, from on the job coaching through to support with charterships

We invest in the training of graduates through our optional Monitored Professional Development Scheme, accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. This is a recognised route to becoming chartered in approximately four years. We have great feedback from our current graduates who find it motivating and helpful to have a framework to identify areas for development and to be paired with a mentor for guidance.
