Electrical and Electronic Engineer Graduate Scheme
As an Electrical/ Electronic Engineer, you’ll make decisions about electronic product content, optimising hardware and software concepts and developing design processes.
Sophisticated systems like ours don’t happen by accident. It takes the skill and dedication of thousands of electrical and electronic (hardware) engineers to make them a reality.
Join us and you’ll make decisions about electronic product content, optimise hardware and software design concepts, develop sophisticated design processes and test complex products.
Activities could include assessment of equipment behaviour and fault diagnosis, assessment of new technologies and components, conducting laboratory tests and capturing data, circuit/firmware simulation and modelling, data analysis, and the preparation of technical reports.
Gaining exposure to the entire project lifecycle, you’ll play a key role in both maintaining our existing systems and developing new technologies.
Apply your talent where it counts.

Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four
Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.
We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.
