Graduate Development Programme - Functional Excellence

Engineering Graduate Programme

Would you like to create the technology of tomorrow?

At Cobham, we’ve got what it takes to turn our graduates into the next generation of innovators, pioneers and entrepreneurs. That’s why we’ve developed a graduate programme with two distinct streams that provides opportunities for the next generation of business leaders and engineers alike. Our Functional Excellence Stream for Engineers, is a structured two-to-three year rotational programme of six to nine month rotations in various disciplines. Where you go depends on your career aspirations and what stream you decide to follow, but wherever you go with us you’ll find support and development opportunities, regular reviews and frequent training sessions.

The duration of the programme is customised to fit your needs. No matter what area you choose to go into, you can count on plenty of exposure to our technology and global culture. That’s why you’ll be required to complete placements across at least two of our divisions. The programme’s big in its scope and goals, but not overly so – everyone knows each other, and you’ll have plenty of time to build your social and professional networks.

Throughout the programme, you'll have regular performance and development reviews with your assignment manager. You'll also be given a mentor who will provide personal and professional support, and a development log that will help you keep track of your progress. And if you want to gain a relevant professional qualification, we'll support you all the way. At the end of the programme, you'll have the opportunity to apply for a permanent position. Where you end up is up to you, but in a company as diverse as ours, you'll always have interesting opportunities. What’s more, every placement you take part in will be vastly different from the others, and there’ll never be any doubt that the work you’re doing is adding significant value to the company.

If you have a first class or upper second degree or a 3.5 GPA in an engineering discipline, we want to hear from you – even if you have a few years of work experience. A 3.5 GPA in an engineering or business discipline would be ideal. We're looking for enthusiasm, an innovative spirit and the kind of big ideas that will help shape the future of Cobham and make a difference in the communities we work in. In return, you’ll have the chance to show us what you can do right from day one, as well as plenty of executive exposure in order to give you the skills you need to become a future leader.
