KMG Multi-Disciplinary Graduate Scheme


Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now


The KMG Multi-Disciplinary Graduate Scheme is designed to give graduate engineers exposure and experience across different engineering departments. This gives graduates a richer training and leads to more experienced engineers who can work across departments. Graduates will work on live projects and are fully embedded into each team they work with.

The Structure

KMG Systems - Manufacturing Timelapse

A timelapse of KMG Systems building and dismantling a new snacks conveying and seasoning system for a customer to inspect in our UK factory.

Graduates will generally take the following route through the business, with exact dates discussed to suit the workload at the time. Typically the overall scheme lasts 3 years and 4 months.

  1. Design Office – 9 months (includes a few days in the factory and allows for probationary period/developing general business awareness)
  2. Electrical Department (6 months)
  3. Automation Department (6 months)
  4. Factory Experience (3 weeks)
  5. Projects Department (6 months)
  6. Sales (6 months)

Following these placements the graduate would have a formal review with their line manager and another member of senior management to discuss their progress, best fit in the business and agree their final placement (6 months) – in a mutually agreed department that fits the graduate and the business.

The graduate scheme finishes with a final review to confirm the graduate fits well in that department or to decide if there is a better fit elsewhere. At this stage the graduate has completed the scheme and is launched into the business in their chosen department. Usually annual appraisals and ongoing training would then apply.

Candidate Profile

We are looking for candidates who:

  • Have a broad understanding and interest in engineering and solving problems
  • Want to work across our 5 key teams of design, electrical, automation, projects and sales before finding their preferred specialty
  • Want to make a meaningful contribution to a growing business
  • Can show initiative and take responsibility for tasks given
  • Work well independently and in a team
  • Are good communicators with excellent spoken and written English

Knowledge and Experience

  • Minimum 2:1 in an IMechE accredited engineering degree (preference to Mechanical/Mechatronics degrees) 
  • Experience of CAD (Solidworks and Autocad preferred) and programming is highly desirable 
  • Relevant work experience/extra-curricular engineering activities.
  • Need to be able to drive

Support and Training

All graduates will be assigned a mentor and a training plan throughout to support your development, with all actions and targets tracked in our in-house Graduate Manager App. Regular reviews ensure that you will continue to progress well and as you complete each part of the program you’ll collate a portfolio of evidence to indicate your achievements. This evidence may be suitable for future use in obtaining Chartered Engineer status. At the end of the programme, you’ll be ready to be launched into a career at KMG.


  • Contributory company pension scheme with contributions matched up to 5%
  • 20 days of annual leave (plus bank holidays), rising to 25 in your 5th year of employment
  • Regular socials.

Closing date - 1st July 2022

Starting date - by 5th September 2022
