Our Schemes

We're training the next generation of rocket scientists. We're in the middle of a long-term development programme, and we know that we'll need skill sets which are hard to find. Our schemes take outstanding young people and train them in both academic and real work environments to turn them into our next generation of designers, technicians and engineers.

Our Schemes

Graduate Programme

Our Graduate programme is a 2-year rotational scheme. You’ll have access to our future focused Learning & Development Framework, take part in team building activities and have the opportunity to create a network of professional contacts.


Apprenticeship Scheme

We run an Advanced Level 3 Apprentice Scheme to ensure our apprentices come out at the cutting edge of engineering and science disciplines. You will be spending this time visiting different departments, learning about different areas of an engineering business; with the final part working in a chosen department.

Applications will open again in November 2019.

Summer Internship Scheme

Our internships runs for a period of 3 months from June to August. There are a number of different internships available which have now been advertised.

Work Experience

If you're interested in Engineering then one of our week long experiences could be for you. Spend an action-packed week in our office meeting people, experiencing the work we do and making new friends.

Shadow a range of people working in your area to understand more about their roles, ask questions and find out more about exciting career opportunities. Plus you'll get advice and coaching from the people you work alongside. If it goes well, you'll have the opportunity to apply for our internship or apprenticeship programmes.

This scheme will open again in the future.
