About the role:

Getting things to happen how they should, when they should, and within budget, is both a science and an art. On this programme, you’ll learn exactly how it’s done. Lasting between two to four years depending on local business needs, and working to the Association for Project Management framework, you’ll experience placements on real projects and work to formal project management Chartership. And all the while, you’ll be mentored by some of the engineering sector’s top project management professionals.

Where you can join us:

Places on our Project Management graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our Marine (Bristol or Leicester), Marine (Plymouth or Keynsham [Bristol]) and Aviation sectors. You’ll experience placements across our UK business and in some of our business areas, internationally. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing:

Expect to work on every kind of project – from design and manufacture to in-service support and capability enhancement projects. Whatever the task at hand, risks need to be identified and managed, stakeholder requirements satisfied, and the whole thing delivered on time and to budget.

Along the way, you’ll develop strong relationships with colleagues in commercial, financial and procurement functions over the course of the programme. That’s because watching our finances is as important as watching the clock when delivering a project. With that professional network behind you, you’ll have everything you need to tackle anything that comes your way.

What you'll get out of it:

We’ll help you become a true professional. And, as our programme is based on the Association for Project Management (APM) Body of Knowledge, you’ll get experience in all the key elements of the APM Competence Framework. Combine this with learning from the best project managers in industry and support from your own mentor and you’ll be ready to go for the APMP qualification. And let’s not forget a competitive starting salary of £28k-£30k.*

What you'll need:

A minimum of a 2:1 Bachelor’s or Master’s degree is essential. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment). (Note: for the Aviation programme, the entry requirements are a 2:2 degree.)]
