Getting things to happen how they should, when they should, is a science. And on this programme you’ll learn the secrets of how we do it. The programme lasts for three years, broken down into two long-term assignments and a few shorter stints on other projects. That way you’ll get a taste of the breadth of our work, but also see how we get from the start line to the finish line.
Where you can join us
You can find out more about the areas of our business offering places on the Project Management programme for autumn 2017 on our website. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.
What you'll be doing
You’ll be making great friends with colleagues in commercial, financial and procurement functions over the course of the programme. That’s because watching the pennies is as important as watching the clock when delivering a project. With that professional network, you’ll tackle everything from organising massive technology demonstrations to complex design projects.
What you'll get out of it
We’ll make sure you get your professional stripes. The programme builds on the Association for Project Management (APM) Body of Knowledge and makes sure you get experience in all the key elements of the APM Competence Framework. Add to that 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 £27,000 - £30,000.
What you'll need
A 2:1 BEng (Hons) degree in Engineering, Business or an equivalent subject is needed. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
Applications for this programme are currently open. To avoid disappointment we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later as we work on a rolling basis and where we experience large volumes of applications, we will close the role early
