Chelton is a global leader in the design, development, manufacture and support of advanced aerospace and defence systems for platforms operating in the air, on land and at sea. With a portfolio spanning Antennas, Avionics and Land, we’ve been securing success in demanding environments since 1947 – one of the longest tenures in the aerospace and defence industry.
From aerospace and defence communications through to navigation and electronic warfare, everything we do is driven by the people behind the products. Our top-level talent combines ground breaking technical capabilities with a matched drive and persistence to offer our customers a competitive edge with exciting new technology.
No two days are alike. You may be involved at any stage of a project; one day on the initial brief for a concept, the design and development stage and another day on the testing of prototypes and the final manufacture and implementation of a new product or system.
One aspect will remain a constant, you'll work in project teams with colleagues in other engineering disciplines and learn from their expertise.
We are recruiting for a number of entry level roles to work in one of our business units; Antennas, Avionics or Land.
To be successful at Chelton, you will need to display true resilience, an inquisitive nature and initiative whilst having the ability and desire to build technical knowledge in your role.
We are open to students with an interest and aptitude for a range of engineering disciplines and, more importantly, a willingness to learn and grow in a collaborative and supportive workplace.
We welcome applications from recent graduates with or without work experience and mature students from all universities, with a Bachelor’s or Master's degree in a STEM subject area.
All roles require basic security clearance and working in some areas within our business may require additional clearance.
We offer opportunities for growth and career progression in a variety of areas, creating individually tailored development plans. We are committed in supporting your journey to achieve industry recognised accreditations and have a dedicated annual engineering training budget which you will be free to take advantage of.
As a well-established company with a proven track record of innovation and engineering excellence, we can offer stimulating opportunities to talented and enthusiastic individuals. We are equally committed to supporting your development aspirations as well as finding the perfect fit in our organisation.
You will be based in one of our three Business Units and, in conjunction with the Heads of Engineering and your dedicated mentor, we will create a bespoke and, importantly, permanent graduate engineering role for you.
We don’t mandate you to spend certain periods of time with individual parts of the business. Instead, we will take your specific engineering interests into consideration and provide you with exposure to a range of different engineering disciplines, such as Software, Electronics and Systems and Mechanical Engineering.
By gaining hands-on experience, you will benefit from learning the many valuable skills you'll need to become a successful engineer with Chelton!
