Graduate Apprenticeship - BEng (Hons) Engineering - Design & Manufacture
Reference: ENG - Grad
Position type: Full time
Salary: Competitive tbc
Closing date: 21/06/2019
Are you a 5th year student interested in a career Engineering?
Consider our Graduate Apprenticeship
As a Graduate Engineering Apprentice, you will build the skills and knowledge that Scottish industries need. You'll work, get paid, and at the end of your 4 years achieve a BEng (Hons) degree. You'll spend most of your time learning on the job, but will also be a student at the University of Strathclyde enjoying all the benefits of being part of that University.
An additional benefit is that not only will graduates have a BEng (Hons) degree like any full-time student, but by gaining appropriate engineering experience through your job and evidencing your work-based learning via the degree course you will also meet the requirements to apply for professional registration as an engineer (IEng status). This approach offers a significantly quicker route to apply for professional registration since full-time engineering students are typically required to work for a number of years post-graduation before they have sufficient engineering experience to apply for professional registration.
The successful applicant will be working in a real business and will be expected to contribute to the team performance and ultimately the success of the business. While they learn, they will be employed by Brodie Engineering and will be expected to be in the office at least 4 days each week. They will have to be prepared to study in their own time during evenings and weekends and will have to have the self-discipline and maturity to manage their own time appropriately.

- Brief CV (this should include any skills or experiences the candidate thinks are relevant)
- Copy of higher certificate or evidence of anticipated results
- Short (half a page of A4 – no need to get carried away) personal statement explaining why the applicant would like to do this. This should recognise why they are interested in engineering and why they would like to be a graduate apprentice.
If successful at this stage we will ask applicants to attend an interview / open night at our Kilmarnock premises to discuss the role with some key people and look around the working environment.
We may also ask applicants to do a small design project or join us for some pair work experience during a school holiday to show their aptitude and creativity.
