Ref: 235| Posted: 13th May 2024

Our Graduate Engineering programme is designed to promote personal and professional growth of new engineers into our business through our various technology, procedures, and processes. The programme is a 24-month rotational programme where graduates get the opportunity to work and gain valuable insight into our business. The programme will consist of three 8-month rotations within our Site Development, Equipment Engineering and Quality Assurance departments. In addition to the rotations all graduates will be further developed through a customised training programme and be supported by a mentor and rotational manager. Our Graduate Engineers will also be given the opportunity to apply to become a member of the IMechE.

JOB PURPOSE:

Fulfils varying engineering tasks and assignments and completes rotations, under varying levels of supervision. Develops skills and capabilities that equips the incumbent to move into a specific engineering role in the organization. Tasks include designing, developing, testing, and implementing equipment and systems that integrate with existing or new products and processes. Working closely with product development, manufacturing, and quality teams to ensure that the equipment meets the technical specifications, performance requirements, and quality standards required for a medical device sector.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES

· Process Design Engineering
Carry out a range of activities under the guidance of more senior colleagues to support the analysis of information, the specification of the methods, process steps, and the plant, machinery and equipment required to design and continuously improve manufacturing or materials processes and process systems.

· Engineering Standards Specification
Carry out a range of activities under the guidance of more senior colleagues to support the drafting of engineering standards and specifications and the evaluation of the effectiveness of those standards.
