Our engineering graduate scheme provides the perfect blend of training and competency development; including the technical, practical and business skills needed to be an engineer for today and tomorrow.
Engineers are essential to our power generation business. During the scheme you will shape your career through delivering on key engineering projects across a variety of functions such as:
- Engineering support – e.g. working on pressure system life extension analysis , gas and steam turbine inspections, safety critical system plant evaluation and modification with the Asset Engineering and Asset Integrity Teams
- Power station maintenance – e.g. the day to day management of contractors , plant maintenance activities, non – destructive testing and pressure part inspections, with our Maintenance Teams
- Power station operations – e.g. a shift cycle in the control room of a CCGT power station, optimising the thermal efficiency of our power plant with the Operations Teams
- Commercial – e.g. evaluating the optimum time for a CCGT power station maintenance shutdown with our Asset Management Teams.
Spread over eighteen months your development will include: specialist technical and practical skills, behavioural, and health & safety training courses, with competency developing placements; supported by our engineering experts and training specialists.
